Ceremony Attendance and Diploma Mailing Form

To assure receipt of your diploma and adequate seating at the ceremony, all degree candidates MUST complete the online ceremony attendance form. The form must be completed no later than December 7, whether or not you plan to attend the ceremony. The form will be available for students to complete at a later date.

  • Associate's and Bachelor's Degree Candidates: Make certain that you indicate your plans to participate at the Friday, December 14, ceremony.
  • Master's Degree Candidates: Indicate if you will participate at the Friday, December 14, ceremony and remember, you must have the proper approval forms turned in (and thesis deposited if applicable) to the Graduate School office by Friday, December 1, to be eligible.
  • Doctoral Candidates: Indicate if you will participate at the Friday, December 14, ceremony and remember, you must have the proper approval forms turned in (and dissertations deposited) to the Graduate School office by Friday, November 24, to be eligible.

Please email commencement@MiamiOH.edu if you need to make any changes to your diploma mailing address or attendance plans after December 7, 2018. If you need to make a change before December 7, you will be able to go back into the application and update your information. Please note that changing your mailing address in BannerWeb will not update your diploma mailing address.

Four to six weeks after the ceremony, after grades have been computed and your eligibility for graduation has been confirmed, your diploma will be mailed to the address you provide on the online form. If you do not complete the form, your diploma will be sent to the home mailing address you have listed with the university.

For students having your diploma mailed to an international address, you will be contacted at the end of November to verify your shipping address and to ask for a valid phone number you can be reached at four to six weeks after graduation for shipping purposes.
