Diploma mailing information

A University of Minnesota diploma (8.5" x 11") includes the graduate’s name
(as submitted on the Application for Degree), the degree earned, the confer date, and honors earned, if applicable. A University of Minnesota diploma does not indicate major(s) or minor(s). Majors and minors are recorded on the Official Transcript.

Diplomas for undergraduates are mailed 6-8 weeks after you are cleared for graduation by your college office. Diplomas for graduate students are mailed 4-6 weeks after you are cleared for graduation; 8-12 weeks for international mailings.

It's very important that you make sure your diploma is sent to the correct address. If you need to change your diploma mailing address, you must do so in MyU: My Info.

If you wish to have your original diploma mailed via FedEx, you must complete a FedEx Diploma Delivery Request. This form must be submitted by the 15th day of the month following your graduation date (e.g., if you graduate in May, this form must be received by June 15).

All other students must notify One Stop Student Services by calling 612-624-1111, emailing, or writing to:
