Diplomas are ordered at the end of each month.  Your information is supplied directly to our printer – we do not print diplomas at the University.  You can expect to receive your diploma approximately 4-6 weeks after your degree has been awarded.  For international addresses – you can expect to receive your diploma at least 6-8 weeks after your degree has been awarded.

The only opportunity you have to update your diploma mailing address is upon applying for graduation.  If your address has changed after applying to graduate, YOU MUST UPDATE YOUR DIPLOMA MAILING ADDRESS WITH THE REGISTRAR’S OFFICE.  FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN A DELAY OF MAILING.

If you require proof of graduation prior to receipt of your diploma, you may request a degree certification from the Registrar’s Office.  There is no cost to you to obtain this letter.

If you have a Bursar Hold on record for a balance due to the University, your diploma will not be mailed.  Your diploma will be held at the Office of the Registrar and you must call us at (631) 632-6175 when your hold is cleared to pick up your diploma or have it mailed.  It is the student’s responsibility to let the Office of the Registrar know that the hold has cleared.

If you would like a Duplicate Diploma, you may order one for a $25.00 fee.  


Please contact the Graduation Staff at (631) 632-6175 or at
