This is the gateway to the UM-Flint Intranet for all faculty, staff, and students. For more information regarding graduation and commencement please go to the Graduation page on the Intranet.

Ceremony Information

Approximately two months prior to the ceremony, you will receive an invitation through your University of Michigan-Flint email account. This email will give you instructions on how to RSVP for the ceremony. Watch your UM-Flint email for information on the ceremony date, time and purchasing cap and gown. It is imperative students RSVP if they wish to participate in the commencement ceremony.

Each year, UM-Flint holds one ceremony in late April or early May and one in December. August graduates are invited to attend either ceremony. Graduates are eligible to attend only one commencement ceremony per degree earned at UM-Flint. Students completing a certificate only are not allowed to participate in commencement.


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 their 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 names (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 their diploma. After 30 days, a duplicate diploma order and payment are required. 

Online Replacement Diploma Services
Graduates may order additional copies of their diplomas for a fee. Duplicate diplomas should not be ordered until the original diplomas have been received.
