Diploma Distribution

Recent/New Graduates

Diplomas for students who have graduated from IUPUI are distributed by the school or division from which you graduated. A number of schools for the May graduation distribute diplomas as part of the commencement ceremonies. Other schools distribute diplomas sometime after the ceremonies. Check with your school on the method of distribution. For Fall (December) and Summer (June/August) diplomas distribution check with your school.

If you did not receive your diploma as part of the commencement ceremony in May or you are a Summer or Fall graduate, your diploma will be held for distribution by your school for one year from your degree conferral date. Check with your school on the method of distribution.

Diplomas Held due to Financial Hold and
Diplomas older than 1 Year from Conferral Date


If you did not receive your diploma due to a financial hold, your diploma is held by the Office of the Registrar. Once you have made payment or arrangements with the Office of the Bursar to clear the hold, check with the Office of the Registrar for diploma distribution.

One year from your degree conferral date undistributed diplomas are returned to the Office of the Registrar.
