Diplomas are mailed beginning four to six weeks after your official graduation date. Diplomas are produced by an off-campus commercial printer and mailed via first class mail to the address designated as your permanent residence or to your diploma mailing address. Please allow additional delivery time for international addresses.  

Awarded students will receive one free paper diploma, including free shipping to the permanent address or diploma mailing address provided. It is important that the address is provided before the end of a student's final term and that the address can receive mail. Diplomas are mailed via first-class mail. The USPS does not provide tracking information for first-class mail.

Diplomas that are not received may be reordered and shipped again. The cost of shipping and a reprint fee will be due upon each reorder.  Please wait 4-6 weeks after the original diploma was shipped before reaching out to the Office of the Registrar to request that a new diploma be reordered and shipped again.  Diplomas that are damaged as a result of shipping may be reordered and shipped for free with the return of the damaged original diploma to the Office of the Registrar. 

University of Oregon diplomas include the following:

  • honors you have earned
  • the signatures of the president of the University, the dean(s) of your college(s), and the Chair of the Board of Trustees, and the Chancellor of the Oregon University System.

Authentication (Apostille)

In some situations students may be required to provide an Authentication or Apostille along with the notarized transcript or diploma. Foreign Jurisdictions often require them before they will accept the notarized document.

If this applies to you and you need an Authentication (Apostille), you will need to complete an “Authentication Application" form obtained from the Oregon Secretary of State website.  If you have additional questions regarding this process, please see the Authenticating Documents (Apostille) FAQ.
