Diplomas & Transcript

Diplomas and official transcripts are not provided until all degree requirements are certified by the college advising office and awarded by the Registrar’s Office after the commencement ceremony. Your college’s advising office will notify you of any deficiencies of degree requirements via your Knight’s email account. Contact your college advising office if you have any questions regarding your status.

Incomplete grades will prevent a candidate from graduating. If this occurs, the candidate must reapply to graduate in a later semester. Grade changes must be completed one week after graduation.


Bachelor’s and master’s diplomas are not distributed at the ceremony. They are mailed to graduates once grades are confirmed. Doctoral diplomas will be inside the diploma cover given to graduates during the ceremony.

Approximately 6 to 10 weeks after commencement, all bachelor’s and master’s diplomas will be mailed to the address indicated on the student’s Intent to Graduate form. Diploma mailing addresses for undergraduate degrees may be changed by logging into MyUCF > Student Self Service > Personal Information > Addresses. Diploma mailing addresses for master’s degrees must be updated by contacting the College of Graduate Studies.

Diplomas will not be issued if the graduate’s record is on hold. The Registrar’s Office will notify students via Knights email of any outstanding holds that would prevent the mailing of transcripts or diplomas prior to the commencement ceremony. All financial obligations must be met in order to receive a diploma and official transcripts. Graduates should check their myUCF portal for any holds that may exist and clear up those obligations before commencement.


Transcripts that reflect the degree earned will be available approximately 4 to 6 weeks after the ceremony. Graduates may submit transcript requests online at myUCF > Student Self Service > Student Center > other academics: (drop down menu) > Transcripts: Request Official. Be sure to turn off pop-up blockers. Graduates must select the “Hold for Degree” processing time option.

Transcript payment must be made at the time of the request. There is a $10 charge per paper transcript pickup request. Secure electronic PDF transcripts can be sent to destinations with a faster delivery time for $15.
