Graduate Ceremony


All diplomas are mailed by our diploma manufacturer directly to your home, so you will receive it even if you are unable to attend a commencement ceremony. Diplomas will be mailed to your permanent address that you provided. It is highly important to change your address before the end of the semester if you plan to move after graduating. You are permitted to change your address to another like a relative or your place of business, not to RMU to pick up. If you change your address after degree conferral, you will be responsible for the postage of remailing your diploma when it is returned to the manufacturer. 

  • Domestic mailing will be charged USPS fee of $10.00.
  • International mailing will be charged FedEx fee of $50.00.

Students with an outstanding hold will not receive their diploma and transcript. Diplomas may be withheld pending satisfaction of all financial obligations (account balances, parking fines, library holds, etc.) to the University.  Settlement of financial obligations should have been resolved prior to Commencement. 

Students earning a dual degree (e.g. BFA and BS) will receive two diplomas, one for each separate degree.  Students earning two majors or two concentrations within the same degree will receive one diploma. Only Engineering majors and Bachelor of Science in Business Administrations have a concentration printed due to accreditation requirements.  Minors are not printed on a diploma.  Undergraduate honors of either Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude or Summa Cum Laude will be printed on the diploma.  All majors, minors, certificates and degree honors are printed on the transcript.

The name printed on your diploma is pulled directly from the information submitted from the graduation application. Your name must match the information on file in your student profile.  If you need to change your name, you must complete a Name Change Form and provide legal documentation to the Office of the Registrar. This must be completed by May 2nd.
