Graduation

Diplomas

Diplomas for both undergraduate and graduate students are available approximately three months after the degree-award date. After week three of their expected term of graduation, students should provide instructions for obtaining the diploma in person or by mail using the diploma request feature on MyUCLA. To expedite receipt of diplomas, instructions should be given no later than one month after the last day of the degree term. Students may also request diplomas in person at 1113 Murphy Hall or by returning a Diploma Mail Request form. Call 310-825-8883 for recorded diploma availability information.

Change of Name

To be reflected on the diploma, a name change must be submitted on a Legal Name Change or Correction form, with supporting documentation, to the Registrar’s Office, 1113 Murphy Hall, by the last day of the degree-expected term. Once the degree is awarded, only a court order will be accepted to make a name change; a replacement diploma fee applies.

Replacement Diploma

If an original diploma is destroyed, a replacement may be ordered by using the diploma request feature on MyUCLA. Students may also order a replacement diploma in person at 1113 Murphy Hall, or by returning a Replacement Diploma Request form. A replacement diploma fee applies. The new diploma bears a reissue date and signatures of current California, UC, and UCLA officials.
