December 2021 Graduates – Diploma, Certificate, and Transcript Information

Posted 11/4/21

The Office of the Registrar will process final degree audits for all December 2021 graduation candidates after Fall final course grades have been recorded. Students can view the degree audit online through DataVU at any time – until your final degree audit is complete, and the degree or certificate is posted on your transcript.

If you see any incomplete grades or other unmet degree requirements, please follow up with your instructor or academic advisor to resolve them as quickly as possible to avoid any delay in graduation.

Diplomas and Certificates

  • Diplomas and certificates will be mailed in a case* to December 2021 graduates.
  • Diplomas and certificates are ready no more than 30 days after the end of the semester. We do our best to distribute them as quickly as possible.
  • We are unable to release diplomas or certificates to graduates with any outstanding obligations to the University. Please resolve any outstanding obligations with the appropriate offices before graduation. Check for holds on your account under Notifications in DataVU.
  • Please use the Diploma Request form in DataVU to give us the address to which the diploma or certificate should be sent. We can only mail your diploma with this request on file.**

  • You may submit a Diploma Request now. Diplomas and certificates will be mailed to the address provided on the Diploma Request form as soon as they are printed.
  • You may make changes to your order by going back to DataVU and updating the Diploma Request form any time before your diploma or certificate is mailed.
  • Please make a note on the Diploma Request form if you need the diploma notarized.
  • Because we understand that all of our graduates have post-graduation plans that require their diploma, transcript, or certificate as soon as possible, we give them all equally high priority. We are unable to expedite the processing of any specific record since it would cause a delay for others.
  • Please visit the Diplomas page for more information.
