Diplomas and Degree Awards

The Registrar’s Office mails all diplomas once all degrees have been confirmed. The degrees are conferred no earlier than a week following the commencement date for all university students.

In order to receive your diploma, it is very important that your permanent mailing address in MyUTK is correct. The last day to change your address in MyUTK is the official date of graduation of each semester. You may select an address different from your permanent address to receive your diploma by providing the information when you apply to graduate on MyUTK. If your mailing address changes after the official date of Graduation, there is a chance you will not receive your diploma. If you do not receive your diploma, there is an additional cost of $25.00 to reorder your diploma. You can verify your name and address of record at MyUTK or by visiting the Office of the University Registrar at 209 Student Services Building.

If either your address or name changes after you have applied for graduation, be sure to contact the Graduation Office in the Registrar’s Office as well as change your record with the University.

Transcripts will contain the information on the awarded degree at the date in the “Key Dates Calendar” on the Registrar’s web page for conferral of degrees. If you find any problems with the information about the awarded degree on the transcript, contact the Graduate School at or directly contact your graduation specialist.
