Degrees will be posted to the student's record 2-4 weeks after end of the semester.
Diplomas are mailed approximately 6 weeks after degrees are noted on student transcripts.

Student diplomas will be mailed to the permanent address listed in the University system. For permanent address changes, students should update their address through the Registrar.
Contact the Diploma Office (301-314-8270) for questions regarding a diploma not received 6 weeks following the semester’s completion, or if you must change the address of where your diploma should be mailed.
