Getting your diploma in hand

Diplomas are typically distributed approximately two months following graduation; diplomas for May graduates are returned to the school in July, while August diplomas are returned in October. Once the School of Health & Human Sciences receives your diploma, we will mail them to you using the mailing address listed on your student account. If your living arrangements have changed and you would like to receive your diploma at a different address, please send an email from your IU email account to Jeff Creasser with your new mailing address. We expect a two- to three-week processing time for mailing these diplomas and students will receive a notification when their diploma has been mailed.
