DIPLOMAS & TRANSCRIPTS
Students should check their Pathway prior to Dec 1 to ensure that they have no holds on their accounts. Any holds should be resolved and removed, as they may delay or hold the student’s diploma or transcript.
On January 13, diplomas and transcripts with degrees posted will be available for pick-up in the Registration & Records office for students who do not have a transcript hold. A transcript hold will prevent a student from receiving an official transcript as well as their diploma.
On January 27, diplomas not picked up will be mailed to the students who do not have a transcript hold.
Students with anticipated Latin Honors will be notified by the School of Medicine Commencement coordinator as soon as the list is available. Medals will be available at the name card table on the day of the ceremony.
Please check back to this website periodically for additional details.
