Diplomas

What You Need To Know About Your Diploma

  • It is crucial for you to provide a current mailing address in order to receive your diploma.
  • Diplomas will be mailed approximately four to six weeks following the commencement date, provided there are no holds on your academic record and you have met degree requirements.
  • Undergraduate and Master degree diplomas are 8.5" x 11" while the PhD diploma is 11" x 14".
  • When you receive your diploma, you will see only the degree and Latin honors (if earned) listed.
  • Your official academic transcript will reflect the degree(s), major(s), minor(s), and honors (Latin, University, Departmental) awarded.
  • If you are awarded multiple degrees, you will receive multiple diplomas which will be shipped separately.
  • If you are awarded multiple majors in the same degree, you will only receive one diploma per degree.
  • A complimentary transcript will be mailed approximately four to six weeks following the commencement date, provided there are no holds on your academic record and you have met degree requirements.

  • We will send an email to your Miami email account when the reprinted diploma has been mailed.
