Important COVID-19 Information

Barring an escalation in the resurgence of COVID-19, the Office of the Registrar will transition from remote operation to a hybrid on-campus/off-campus model. Diploma pickup service will resume in August with advance notice (with our acknowledgment) of three work days.  We appreciate your patience as we take steps to keep you and our staff safe.

A Gift for You!

We are proud of our IU graduates! If you earned/will earn your degree between December 2020 and August 31, 2021, IU will purchase for you one CeDiploma (electronic diploma) for each original paper diploma you are issued. You will be notified by the vendor when your CeDiploma is available for download. Resolve your record holds and register for a CeCredential account now to prevent delays and to claim your gift before the October 1, 2021 offer expiration. Your degree need not be awarded when you register.

Graduates, please check your IU email inbox (spam and trash folders too) for an email with important diploma details from diploma@iu.edu.

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.
