Diplomas

Important COVID-19 Information

Current COVID-19 precautions require our office to work remotely. Diploma pickup service has been suspended until further notice. Diploma delivery special handling requests may take longer than usual.  We appreciate your patience as we take steps to keep you and our staff safe.

Attention May 2021 Graduates

Watch your IU email account for a message arriving 4/22/2021 that verifies your diploma name and the address where your diploma will be sent. If you need special handling of your diploma for a degree awarded in May, you must request those arrangements by emailing diploma@iu.edu no later than Wednesday, May 26, 2021. Special handling arrangements include the following:

  • FedEx delivery (payment links will be sent after your degree appears on your transcript)
  • Requests to have your diploma held for mailing at a later date

May 26 is also the deadline for the following:

  • Primary name updates (Preferred name changes do not impact diplomas)
  • ALL STUDENT HOME address changes (diplomas will only be sent to this address type)

A Gift for You!

IU will purchase for you one CeDiploma (electronic diploma) for each May 2021 diploma you are issued. You will be notified by the vendor in June at your IU email account when your diploma is available. Record holds will prevent the upload of your degree information to the vendor, so resolve your holds and register for a CeCredential account now (no degree is necessary to register) to prevent delays.

See the 4/22/2021 email for specifics about when your diplomas will become available. Please check this website frequently for updates.

In a hurry?

If you want your diploma sooner, you can have it delivered via FedEx Priority to a U.S. address ($25) or via FedEx International Priority to an international address ($45). To receive your diploma through FedEx, you must complete a FedEx request form. Note that FedEx will not deliver to P. O. boxes. You must supply a street address for delivery.

For more information about FedEx Priority delivery, visit the FedEx website.

Changing your name on your diploma

The name on your diploma will be the same as your primary name on record. You can request a variation of your legal name (for example, first or middle initial instead of your full first or middle name) on your degree.
