After Commencement

Please check back often for up-to-date information.


The degree conferral process occurs the week after each term, after all final grades have been posted.

Diplomas will be mailed to graduates approximately eight weeks after degrees have been conferred by the Registrar’s office, concluding a final degree audit by the individual Schools. The diploma will be mailed to the address specified on the degree application, unless an address change has been requested before the end of the semester.

Diplomas are issued using the name specified on the degree application. If you want your name changed, you must request a name change by the Registrar’s Office with proper identification before the end of the semester.

Duplicate diplomas may be ordered from the Office of the Registrar at a cost of $50 per copy. Please contact the Business Office at 575-392-6562 to pay the fee. Your request must include the following form completed and signed:
