Diplomas are mailed approximately six to eight weeks after the degree conferral date. Graduates will receive an email notification via their ASU email account when their diploma has been mailed. Diplomas are mailed to the student's diploma mailing address, which can be viewed and updated from My ASU. Invalid or incorrect addresses will delay delivery. Students are notified by email if their diploma was returned to the university. All undeliverable diplomas returned to ASU will be retained by University Registrar Services for one year.
Graduates with a delinquent financial obligation of $25 or more will not receive a diploma until their account is paid. Questions about delinquent accounts can be directed to Collections at 480-965-5220.
The student diploma name, i.e. how the name appears on the diploma, is created when when students apply for graduation or when they submit a diploma name change request from My ASU. Once applied or submitted, the diploma name is displayed on MyASU page on the profile tab or on the graduation tab in the My Programs box. Diploma name change requests are for updating middle names, adding accents or special characters, correcting spacing issues, changing upper/lower case, etc., and are not intended for making changes to a student's permanent record.
Graduates can request additional or replacement diplomas from here or from My ASU via the graduation tab in the My Programs box. Each additional diploma costs $35 and will arrive in four to six weeks. When the diploma has been mailed, an email notification will be sent to the email address listed on the Additional Diploma Request form. Expedited mailing is available for an additional fee.
Graduates may purchase a signed and certified PDF of their diploma for a one-time fee of $5.00. Graduates pay the $5.00 fee (per degree) directly to our diploma vendor, the Michael Sutter Company, and the eDiploma is accessible for life. The eDiploma is offered in addition to the paper diploma issued to all graduates and is available to you within minutes of ordering. You can share your eDiploma as often as you need. Request your eDiploma here. Students that graduated before 2001 must contact the Graduation Office at 480-965-3256 prior to requesting an eDiploma.
Some international organizations may ask for the attachment of an apostille to certain documents. An apostille is an additional form of authentication given to a notarized document to certify that the document is a true, i.e., exact, copy of the original.
ASU can provide you with a notarized copy of your ASU official transcript and/or diploma to submit to the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office for apostille purposes. Before requesting notarization, please check with the agency requesting your documents to determine what level of document verification is required.
For more information on how to request notarized official transcripts or diplomas, please contact Outgoing Transcripts at 480-965-7276 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be responsible for submitting the notarized document(s) to the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office to request the apostille. Review the complete instructions for filing an apostille request.
