Receiving Your Diploma

Degree-Seeking Students


University of Illinois policy prevents mailing a diploma if you have a past-due account. Contact the University Student Financial Services and Cashiers Operations with questions about your account balance. Once your account has been cleared, you need to contact the Office of the Registrar by phone at 217-333-6383 or to let us know that we can order and mail your diploma.

Delivery of Your Diploma

University of Illinois diplomas are 8.5 × 11 inches and sent by first-class mail to a student's diploma address approximately 9 weeks after the date of the award. Before your graduation date, please review and make changes if necessary to your diploma mailing address in Student Self-Service under the Personal Information tab.

Check Your Order Status

Check the status of your ordered diploma through our diploma printing company.

After mailing, if your diploma is returned to the Office of the Registrar, you will be responsible for providing a corrected address and paying for any forwarding mail charges as well as processing fees. If your diploma is not returned to the Office of the Registrar and 90 days have passed since the mailing date, you will be responsible for providing the correct address and paying for the cost of the replacement diploma.
