All about your diploma

You’ll get a red IU diploma cover—but not the diploma itself—at Commencement. There are a few steps you need to take to ensure you get your diploma:

  • Apply online to graduate from IUPUC. Enter your name exactly as you want it on your diploma. Give the address where you want to receive all graduation-related information. 
  • If your degree is coming from IUPUI, use their graduation application. There is a separate one for each of the Schools there. For example, a BA in Sociology comes from the IUPUI School of Liberal Arts. 
  • Close to your graduation date, ensure there are no holds on your account. A school debt can prevent you from receiving your diploma or ordering an official transcript. 

All diplomas other than professional diplomas are 8 ½ x 11 inches. Professional diplomas are 16 x 20 inches.

How to get your diploma

You'll be notified once your diploma is available for pickup. You can pick up your diploma at the registrar services office.

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.
