Diplomas and Certificates
We are introducing a digital diploma and/or certificate for the first time, starting with Spring 2022 graduates.
Students can get their digital credential faster, so it’s a great way to immediately share your accomplishment with your family, friends, and potential employers.
Upon completion of the final graduation audit, graduates will receive an email with instructions for electronically claiming their diploma and/or certificate.
Follow these simple steps:
- Check your school email and text messages for the award notification.
- Follow the link to set up your Parchment digital credentials account.
- Share your digital diploma on Facebook and LinkedIn via a verified link, or download a secure .pdf version.
The digital diploma and/or certificate will always be accessible online through your Parchment account. You can login to your Parchment account and download or share your diploma and/or certificate as many times as you’d like throughout your lifetime.
Your paper diploma and/or certificate will still be mailed to your permanent address on file within 6 to 8 weeks from the end of the graduating term. Please make sure your address is up to date via Ozone.
