Diplomas at Graduation

Beginning August 2021, all diplomas will be mailed to graduates. Diplomas will be mailed to students' HOME/PERMANENT addresses as recorded in Self-Service Banner (SSB). Students must CHECK THEIR ADDRESSES in SSB for accuracy. If the diploma should be mailed to an alternate address, students must use Self-Service Banner to add a DIPLOMA address.  

International Students: Be certain to check the HOME/PERMANENT ADDRESS on record, since this is the address the diploma will be mailed to. If the diploma should be mailed to a different location, students must use Self-Service Banner to add a DIPLOMA ADDRESS. Finally, if an international student has no HOME/PERMANENT or DIPLOMA address, the diploma will be mailed to the FOREIGN address as recorded in Self-Service Banner.

All addresses must be verified no later than the official graduation date.Should a diploma be returned to the university because an address is undeliverable, the student will be responsible for payment of fees to mail the diploma a second time.

Please note that it takes several weeks to review each student's record individually for degree clearance. With that in mind, diplomas are estimated to ship on or after the dates specified below. Diplomas are mailed via the United States Postal Service. Please allow adequate time for anticipated delivery and receipt of your diploma via USPS.

Certified Electronic Diplomas

A Certified Electronic Diploma and/or Certified Electronic Certificate is issued for all graduates from May 2020 foward. Graduates must check their DU email for the notification message from info@cecredentialtrust.com. Students must register with CeCredential Trust using their multipass credentials to retrieve the electronic diplomas. Since the multipass username and password will expire once a student has separated from the university after one year, students must register within that time frame in order to be able to access the CeDiploma.

Former Graduates

All diplomas of graduates prior to August 2021 have been mailed to those students who supplied mailing addresses. Any former graduate who has not supplied an address can do so by completing the Diploma Mailing form  to provide a mailing address.  

Former graduates wishing to order a duplicate diploma can use the instructions on this web page to place the order.
