Requirements for Receiving Your Diploma

Official Diploma Requirements

  • To be considered an official December 2020 graduate, we must receive documentation of completed work by January 15, 2021.
  • Diplomas will be mailed by February 15, 2021. Please check with the Business Office to make sure your account is in good standing as this may prevent your diploma/official transcript from being released.
  • Official transcripts - Federal Privacy Laws state that we require a signature from the student before we can release any document with your grades on it.  If you need to order an official or unofficial transcript, please visit the Registrar Transcript Page, then click on the Transcript Request form. You may print this form and scan/email, fax, or mail it to our office.

Additional copies of diplomas may be ordered for $10.00 per diploma. To order additional copies of your diploma, contact Julie McGarrah in the Registrar's Office at (479) 524-7103 or jmcgarrah@jbu.edu.
