Obtaining Your Diploma

It is Temple University policy that a student’s first and last name will appear his/her diploma as is listed on his/her official academic record  and that a name on an academic record (including a diploma) is not changed after graduation and/or ceasing enrollment.


Approximately six to eight weeks after the date of degree conferral, your diploma will be mailed to the address listed on your graduation application. To avoid delays or errors in the ordering of your diploma, and to avoid any fees in the reprinting of your diploma, please be sure to:

1. Verify that your Graduation Application lists your diploma name correctly.

2. Verify that your Graduation Application lists the correct address for diploma mailing.

3. Resolve any outstanding financial obligations with the university, as your diploma will not be ordered otherwise. (Once your hold is cleared, you may write to diploma@temple.edu to request that we order your diploma).

If you need to change any of the information listed on your graduation application, please write to us at diploma@temple.edu. Students are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of this information.

Note: If you graduated less than one year ago and never received your diploma, do not use this form. Write to diploma@temple.edu to inquire about the status of your diploma.
