Where Is My Diploma?

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

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 more information.

Electronic and Paper Diplomas

As of Fall 2022 graduates, the University of Cincinnati will automatically provide both a CeCredential and a Ceremonial Diploma (or Certificate) to graduates. It takes six–eight weeks after commencement for your CeCredential to be available for download and Ceremonial Diploma to be shipped. You will receive an email to your UC email address with shipping updates.

Important: Your ceremonial diploma will be sent to the Diploma Mailing Address you have indicated in Catalyst. Your Diploma Mailing Address must be updated as soon as possible, to ensure it is sent to the correct address. 

More information can be found on the Registrar's After Commencement page.


Whether your job search is local or global, digital diplomas are easy to use by employers and licensing agencies seeking to verify credentials. It's also easy to provide to other institutions if you will be pursuing further education. The digital CeDiploma is an official UC document certifying your awarded degree. The CeDiploma is portable, shareable, securely encrypted, and can never be lost or damaged.   

More information can be found on the Registrar's Certified Electronic Credential page.

If you have any questions, please visit Office of the Registrar Website or email with your name and student ID.
