You should file a Diploma Application the semester prior to your intended graduation. Applications may be picked up at the Registrar's Office (Netzer 130). The fee is $10.00 (Beginning Fall 2014, fee will be $5.00). Payment may be made by check or money order made payable to O.A.S. S.A. Diploma Account or Dragon Dollars.
When you submit your Diploma Application one semester prior to expected graduation you will receive a graduation pre-check by the beginning of the next semester. For example, if you expect to graduate in May and you file your Diploma Application before the end of the fall semester, you will receive a notification of any unfulfilled requirements in time to make any necessary adjustments to your spring schedule.
When you fill out the Diploma Application, please complete only the white areas. Your name should be printed exactly as you want it to appear on your diploma. Diplomas are mailed out 6-8 weeks after graduation, so please use an appropriate address for that time frame. If you have any questions, please call Degree Services at 436-3215 or e-mail Degree Services at firstname.lastname@example.org
