  • If you order an official transcript but would like to wait until your degree is posted before processing, please be sure to select this option at the time of ordering.
  • To request your degree posting be expedited, please contact the Office of the Registrar before the end of term for approval.
    • Please note that being approved for an expedited degree does not mean a graduate will receive their diploma early.
