An office in Enrollment Management


If you have applied for graduation, the Office of the University Registrar will automatically place an order for your original (first) diploma. This order is defaulted to pick up. If you need to modify your order to update your diploma method please do so by following the "Modify a Diploma Delivery Request" on Page 4 of the Diploma Delivery instructions.

If you wish to have your original diploma sent to an address outside of the U.S., you may update the mailing address by logging into your Enroll and Pay Student Center and selecting Diploma Delivery Request under My Academics. International mail charges are listed below.

Diplomas will not be provided for students with financial and other obligations to the University of Kansas.

The Office of the University Registrar will hold diplomas for one year after graduation. Students who do not pick up/update their delivery method for their diploma within one year will need to order and pay for a replacement diploma through Enroll & Pay.

Diploma Pickup

If you are picking up your diploma, please wait for a response from the Office of the University Registrar before arriving at the KU Visitor Center or Edwards Campus reception desk. We will contact you when your diploma is ready for pick-up.  

A Photo ID is required. If you would like to authorize another person to pick up your diploma please fill out the Authorization for document pickup by third party form. Diplomas may be picked up at the KU Visitor Center (Lawrence Campus).
