ASU student with a diploma



Diplomas are mailed approximately six to eight weeks after the degree conferral date. Graduates will receive an email notification via their ASU email account when their diploma has been mailed. Diplomas are mailed to the student's diploma mailing address, which can be viewed and updated from My ASU. Invalid or incorrect addresses will delay delivery. Students are notified by email if their diploma was returned to the university. All undeliverable diplomas returned to ASU will be retained by University Registrar Services for one year.

Graduates with a delinquent financial obligation of $25 or more will not receive a diploma until their account is paid. Questions about delinquent accounts can be directed to Collections at 480-965-5220.

Diploma Name

The student diploma name, i.e. how the name appears on the diploma, is created when when students apply for graduation or when they submit a diploma name change request from My ASU.  Once applied or submitted, the diploma name is displayed on MyASU page on the profile tab or on the graduation tab in the My Programs box.  Diploma name change requests are for updating middle names, adding accents or special characters, correcting spacing issues, changing upper/lower case, etc., and are not intended for making changes to a student's permanent record.

Diploma Address

You will indicate where you want your diploma mailed when you apply for graduation. You can also change your diploma address from the profile tab on My ASU. Diplomas are mailed by a vendor in Utah and ensuring your diploma is mailed to the correct address is your responsibility.  Any changes to your diploma address should be made prior to your conferral date

An apostille is issued to certify that a notarized document is a true copy of the original. This is the international standard for verifying documents sent between countries.

ASU can provide you with a notarized copy of your diploma to submit to the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office for apostille purposes.  However, before submitting a request for notarization, please check with the requesting agency to verify what level of verification is required.

For information on how to request a notarized diploma, please contact URS graduation services at 480-965-3256 or
