Important COVID-19 Information

Current COVID-19 shelter in place precautions require our office to work remotely. The following diploma services have been halted until further notice: delivery of all printed diplomas, diploma pickups, and diploma notarization and apostilles.

Attention May 2020 Graduates

In anticipation of restrictions being lifted this summer you were emailed on May 11, 2020 with details about your diploma. If you need special handling of your diploma for a degree awarded in May 2020, you must request your arrangements by emailing diploma@indiana.edu no later than Monday, June 1, 2020. Special handling arrangements involve the following:

  • Diploma pickup (Update 06/26/2020: Pickup service is not available until further notice.)
  • FedEx delivery
  • Notarization/apostille
  • Notification of a record hold release impacting your diploma (June 1 and previous only)

All arrangements are tentative and may change as COVID-19 restrictions evolve. Please check this website frequently for updates.

Students needing expedited diploma verification are encouraged to purchase a CeDiploma (electronic diploma). CeDiplomas are available to May 2018 and later graduates who have no holds on their record and who have a CeCredential account or an active IU email account. You can read more at https://cecredential.iu.edu/ and email diploma@indiana.edu with any questions or concerns. CeDiplomas for May 2020 graduates are expected to become available near the end of June.

FedEx payment links will be sent only after degrees are awarded. FedEx requests for May 2020 diplomas must be received by no later than June 1, 2020.

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.
