The Registrar’s Office will certify each candidate’s degree after all final grades have been received. Final grades must be submitted, all academic requirements verified, and financial obligations to the university met before diplomas are issued. Diplomas will be available for pickup starting Wednesday, September 1, 2021 in Virginia Hall, Room G12, and will be available for pickup through Friday, September 17, 2021. On Monday, September 20, 2021, all remaining diplomas will be mailed to the students’ permanent address via USPS.
