Registrar Support: Diplomas

When to expect Your Diploma after Degree Conferral

Upon conferral of the degree, the student will receive e-mail confirmation via their Walden e-mail address. The e-mail will provide instructions on requesting an official transcript and attending the commencement ceremony. Diplomas or certificates along with a letter of congratulations from the University President will be mailed to the student’s address as requested on the Graduation Application and will be received approximately 2–4 weeks after the degree conferral has been processed.

Ordering a Duplicate Diploma

Students should take care to ensure the name provided in the graduation application is accurate, as this is the name which will appear on the diploma. If you have a name change prior to degree conferral, but have already submitted your graduation application, please contact as promptly as possible so that fees can be avoided. Any updates received after degree conferral (graduation) that result in the reprint of a diploma or certificate will result in a fee of $25 to the student.

You can email, fax, or mail the form below to request a duplicate diploma or certificate.
