Graduation/Diplomas

Our Graduation/Diplomas service area works with University departments to process graduation and students to process diploma reorders. Graduation is not an automatic process. You must contact your dean's office to complete a Graduation Application before their deadline. In most academic centers, the deadline is one or two terms prior to your intended term of graduation. Upon review and final approval by your dean's office, your graduation is authorized and your diploma is ordered. You must be in good financial standing with the University to receive your diploma.

If your graduation is postponed, you must reapply through your dean's office by completing another Graduation Application.

NOTE: Your name on your Graduation Application must be identical to the way it appears on the University's student information system. You will be required to provide legal documentation to change your name. The acceptable documentation is a birth certificate, marriage certificate, divorce decree, formal court order or a valid passport.

Your diploma, along with a complimentary official copy of your final transcript, will be mailed to you at no charge approximately six to eight weeks after the end of your term of graduation. We will mail your diploma to the address you have listed on the Graduation Application. If you have need to change that address, see the online printable Diploma Mailing Address Change Form. This form, and all diploma address changes, can only be accepted up to one month prior to the end of your graduation term/session. Check your transcript carefully. Any discrepancies should be brought to the attention of the appropriate office immediately. For information on ordering additional copies of your official transcript, please see the Transcripts section.

Additional copies of your diploma may be purchased anytime after graduation. Requests for additional diplomas can be made by completing the online printable Diploma Reorder Request Form. The form must be filled out, signed and returned, either in person or by mail, with payment to:

University of Pittsburgh
Diplomas
G-3 Thackeray Hall
Pittsburgh, PA 15260

The fee for each standard diploma, including mailing, is $25.00. The fee for Professional or University Honors College diplomas is $50.00. The reorder process takes approximately four weeks. Diplomas will be in the current style and font and bear the signatures of the current administrators.
