Where Is My Diploma?

Diplomas will only be printed for students who have completed the graduation application and have been certified by both their program and the Graduate School. A student's participation in the Doctoral Hooding and Master's Recognition Ceremony does not guarantee that s/he will receive a diploma.

Diplomas are not handed out at graduation. Your diploma will be mailed to you approximately six weeks after graduation. UC does not advise you to submit the diploma to current or prospective employers. Instead, you should provide them with an official transcript or degree verification document.

If you need to prove to a current or prospective employer that you have graduated, provide a UC degree verification document. Enrollment and degree verifications are now available for students to print from Catalyst. Please visit the Registrar's website for instructions on how to obtain your official letter.
