How to get your diploma
We’ll mail your diploma to your student home address 10 to 12 weeks after you graduate, once we’ve verified your final grades and that you completed your degree requirements.
Please contact Student Central at 812-941-2100 for assistance.
If you have an international student home address, you can expect to get your diploma in six to eight weeks after we mail it. Diplomas are sent via U.S. Air Mail.
If you want your diploma sent to an international address, you must enter your full international address as your student home address.
Electronic Diplomas (CeDiplomas)
If you graduated in May 2018 or after, you have the option to get a CeDiploma - an official, secure, and verifiable proof of your degree completion.
CeDiplomas can be used by future employers, licensing agencies, or any other third party to verify your achievement. After you have purchased your CeDiploma, you may share it with anyone you choose.
Once your CeDiploma is available (unless you have a hold on your record), you will be sent an email to your IU email providing you ordering details. You don’t have to wait for the email to pre-order one, though. Simply search “electronic diplomas” in One.IU to access the application site.
In a hurry?
If you want your diploma sooner, you can have it delivered via FedEx Priority to a U.S. address ($25) or via FedEx International Priority to an international address ($45). To receive your diploma through FedEx, you must complete a FedEx request form. Note that FedEx will not deliver to P. O. boxes. You must supply a street address for delivery.
For more information about FedEx Priority delivery, visit the FedEx website.
Changing the name on your diploma
The name on your diploma will be the same as your primary name on record. You can request a variation of your legal name (for example, first or middle initial instead of your full first or middle name) on your degree.
