Diploma at Commencement

Doctoral graduates who are enrolled only into dissertation (7980) or who are enrolled into dissertation and/or another S/U graded course will receive their diploma at graduation.

Diploma by Mail

Doctoral graduates who are enrolled into any letter graded (A/F) course during the final semester will have their diploma mailed to them after the final GPA and degrees are certified. All master’s graduates will receive their diploma by mail. The Graduate College publishes that diplomas are normally mailed within 10 weeks of commencement.

What if I need to change my diploma mailing address?

You can change your diploma mailing address by e-mailing the Graduate Records office at gradrcrd@ucf.edu This can be done until the day of Commencement.

Degree Certification

Your transcripts, showing the degree has been awarded, may not be available for up to six weeks after commencement. The Registrar’s Office has an online site where you can order your final, official transcripts and you can request to have it held for delivery until it shows the degree has been earned.

In advance of your final transcripts being available, if you need an official letter showing that you have met all of the degree requirements, you can request this from the Graduate College, please e-mail or call (407/823-2766 ext. 0) that office for more information.
