Where am I?
A commencement fee of $75, which includes the cost of your diploma, is required of all graduating students, even those choosing not to participate in the actual ceremony. This fee, along with any outstanding balances, must be paid in the Business Office or to the OPTIONS Accountant before diplomas or transcripts will be issued.
Diplomas are not given at the ceremony. Students participating in the ceremony receive a diploma cover on stage. Actual diplomas are available outside the Registrar's Office, Room 205, Ryan Hall, immediately following the ceremony for one hour. Any diplomas not picked up the day of the ceremony, as well as those of the people not participating, will be in the Registrar's Office beginning May 21 during regular office hours, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm, Monday thru Friday.
Students requesting to have their diplomas picked up by another person will need to complete a Student Consent for Disclosure of Education Records ("Ferpa form"). The authorized person will need to present a photo ID at the time of pick-up.
Students wishing to have their diploma mailed must request this service in writing. There is a $10 postage and handling fee to mail diplomas. Diplomas will not be mailed until this fee has been paid. Please mail or deliver your request, with the fee and your correct mailing address to:
