Diploma Distribution

Getting that important piece of paper

You’ll get your diploma from your school or division after your degree has been conferred. Contact your school to find out how diplomas are distributed.

Your school will keep your diploma for one year after your degree conferral date.

Diplomas are typically available 6–8 weeks after the end of the term.

When to contact the registrar

If you cleared a hold that prevented you from getting your diploma or if more than a year has passed since your degree was conferred, you’ll need to get your diploma from the Office of the Registrar.

Get your diploma in person

Pick up your diploma in person at no charge at the Office of the Registrar. Make sure to bring an official photo ID such as your driver’s license.

If you send someone else to pick up your diploma, make sure they have:

  • Your full name at graduation
  • Your university ID or the last four digits of your Social Security number
  • A written authorization giving them permission to get your diploma

Get your diploma in the mail

If you can’t make it to campus, you can request that your diploma be mailed for a $10 fee.

Send a letter (or fax if desired, if paying by credit card) to the Office of the Registrar (ATTN: Diploma Distribution) and include the following:

  • Your full name at graduation
  • Your university ID or the last four digits of your Social Security number
  • The address where you’d like your diploma mailed
  • A check or money order for $10, payable to IUPUI Office of the Registrar or your Visa, Mastercard, or Discover Card number and expiration date
  • Your daytime phone number
