Please note that the address you list as your diploma address is where your diploma will be mailed three to six months after graduation. If you move, it is your responsibility to update your diploma address in your ‘Student Center’ (this can be done under the ‘Personal Information’ tab by selecting, the drop-down menu, choosing ‘Addresses’, pressing ‘Add a New Address’, and selecting the ‘Diploma’ option). If you do not update your diploma address your diploma will be mailed to the mailing address the university has on file. Addresses changed more than 45 days after graduation are not guaranteed for diploma delivery. You may have to formally request and pay for a new diploma to be sent to the desired address.
