Diplomas

Diplomas are mailed to degree recipients each semester after grades have been recorded and all requirements have been evaluated for completion. This process takes approximately four weeks after the graduating term. During this time, you can verify if your degree has been posted by logging onto Campus Information Services and selecting "Personal Graduation Information." Your diploma will be sent to your mailing address as shown in CIS. Please update this information no later than the last week of classes for your graduating term. Please do not rely on the post office to forward your diploma.

Honors at Graduation

Honors are awarded at graduation to undergraduate students who complete with distinction at least 60 semester credit hours of undergraduate course work at the University of Utah.  Fifty or more of those hours must bear letter grades.  Transfer hours and credit by examination are not used in the computation of honors.
