Diplomas will not be distributed at the ceremony. Diplomas will be mailed directly to degree recipients approximately 4-6 weeks after the ceremony. Please make sure that the Registrar's Office has a valid address to mail your diploma to by completing the Diploma Address portion of the BS/BSHS petition.

Students receiving a degree in May and not participating in Commencement
The Registrar’s Office will deliver diplomas via UPS approximately one week after Commencement. Please be sure that the Registrar’s Office has a valid current address.
