Originating Calendar
Registrar - Degree Cert & Study Abroad Unit

Date for graduating students to submit a request for a diploma name change or unique diploma name to the Registrar's Office for inclusion in December Unit Convocation ceremonies.

Diploma names are displayed on diplomas and are used in the Commencement program, lists of graduates, and Commencement related press releases. 

Examples of diploma names include: using a middle name instead of a first name; using an abbreviated name (Tom instead of Thomas); using an Americanized name (Wendy instead of Haiyan); or using a name that better reflects one’s ethnic, racial or gender identity. If you’d like to create a diploma name, please email us (include UIN) by October 30, 2022.

Please be advised that in some situations, the name appearing on your diploma may need to match other legal documents you possess.
