Diplomas are issued and distributed by the Registrar’s Office. Typically Diplomas become available three to four months after the degree award date. For example if you are a Winter 2021 degree candidate your diploma will most likely be available June/July 2021. Therefore, it is not possible to process final grades and prepare degree lists for our Spring 2021 and Summer 2021 candidates in time to present diplomas at Commencement.
Please visit the Diploma FAQ available at the Registrar’s Office to review all information pertaining to obtaining your diploma in person (no fee) or by mail (with fee) approximately seven weeks after the end of your final term. Consequently, you should notify the Registrar’s Office if there is any change in address after you graduate. You may also change your mailing address directly via MyUCLA.
NAMES, CHANGES, SPECIAL MARKS, and ERRORS
The name printed on your diploma will be your official name on file with the University Registrar’s Office. Please check your name! If your name has changed or is misspelled or needs a special marking, please review the Registrar’s Office (Names, Changes, Special Marks, Errors) to ensure official records are updated appropriately.
