Diploma Distribution

Getting that important piece of paper

Congratulations on your big accomplishment!  The printed diploma will be mailed directly to you* within 6-8 weeks after the end of the semester.  Look for an email from our vendor partner, Paradigm, once the diploma is in the mail.

Diplomas are mailed to the STUDENT HOME address that is listed in your SIS Student Center (under My Profile > Contact Info > Addresses).  Make sure this information is updated – before the end of the semester – with the address where you want your diploma sent.  

As a graduate of IUPUI, you can also purchase a certified electronic diploma (ceDiploma).  This PDF version of your degree can be shared with employers, family, friends, and social media. It is simple for employers and organizations to read and understand. 

How do I order a ceDiploma? 

Once your paper diploma has been mailed, you’ll receive an additional email invitation from our vendor partner, Paradigm, with details on how to request access to your ceDiploma.  Click here for more detailed information. 

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

When to contact the registrar

In rare occasions, a non-financial hold may restrict you from getting your diploma. Be sure to confirm you have no holds here.

There may be times when a printed diploma might be stored in the Registrar’s Office.  If it’s been longer than 2 months since you graduated and you want to see if we have your diploma, contact us via phone (317) 274-1519 or via e-mail (indyregr@iu.edu).
