Diploma covers are distributed to graduates at the Commencement ceremony. Graduates should expect to receive their actual diplomas in the mail approximately four to six weeks after your degree is posted.  There is no charge for this diploma. Diplomas are mailed to the graduate's address on file in the Office of the Registrar unless otherwise noted on the graduation application.  Please note that tuition, fees, and all financial obligations must be paid in full before a diploma can be issued.

University of Michigan diplomas do not list majors or minors, only degree name (e.g. Bachelor of Arts).  Academic honors, Maize & Blue Award, and Honors Scholar Program are listed on the diploma under the degree name.

Graduates have 30 days from the receipt of their diploma to notify the Office of the Registrar of grammatical errors or other issues on your diploma. After 30 days, a duplicate diploma order and payment are required.
