Diploma & Transcript FAQs

When will I receive my diploma/transcripts?

Your degree and diploma will not be awarded at the commencement ceremony. Degrees are posted on your permanent record after your college/school completes an audit of your academic record and notifies the Records and Registration Office that you have completed all requirements. This process may take up to eight weeks after grades are due in the Records Office. Your diploma will be mailed to your “home” address listed in WINGS. Questions regarding your address should be directed to Records and Registration, 117 Graff Main Hall, 608.785.8951.

Academic Services Directors have 30 days from the end of the semester to get degrees earned posted. Please be aware of the time-frame when ordering transcripts shortly after graduation.  

I'm not attending a Commencement ceremony, how do I get a diploma cover?

Diploma covers are provided to graduating students at the Commencement ceremony. If you do not attend a ceremony, you may request that your diploma cover is mailed to you. There is a $15 fee for shipping/handling.
