Getting Your Diploma

If you were approved to graduate in May (spring semester), your diploma will be mailed approximately eight–10 weeks after the ceremony to the address you provided. For those students who participated in the May ceremony but who are planning to graduate in August (summer semester), you can expect to receive your diploma approximately eight–10 weeks after the semester ends, provided all academic and financial requirements have been met. Students graduating in December and hoping to attend the following May ceremony will receive their diplomas approximately eight–10 weeks after the semester ends, provided all academic and financial requirements have been met.

Diplomas will include your name, degree, and any honors received. (Any minor received will appear on your transcript only.) The Office of the Registrar will order your diploma using the name you indicated on the diploma order form. Additionally, diplomas will be mailed to the address you indicated on the address collection form. If you would like to check or update the address where your diploma will be sent, please email Evan Kopca, assistant registrar, at ekopca@berklee.edu.
