How and when will my diploma be available after graduation?

Diplomas for both undergraduate and graduate students are available approximately three months after the degree award date. Information about obtaining your diploma in person or by mail is sent to your e-mail address approximately six weeks after the end of your final term. Once available, diplomas may be picked up at the Registrar's Office, 1113 Murphy Hall, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Photo ID is required.

To expedite receipt of your diploma, you are encouraged to submit the Diploma Mail Request form to UCLA Registrar, Attn: Diploma Processor, 1113 Murphy Hall, Box 951429, Los Angeles CA 90095-1429.

How can I be sure that my diploma is ready for pick-up?

A diploma hotline with current recorded diploma information--(310) 825-8883--is available seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Once the diplomas for a specific term are ready, this information is recorded the same day. Please note that college and departmental honors require extra printing time. Graduates falling into those categories should call (310) 825-1091 option 6 before attempting in-person pick-up.

Can someone pick up my diploma for me?

Yes; however, if you authorize another individual to either order or pick up your diploma, you must provide that individual with a Diploma Agent Authorization that includes his/her name, your signature, and a copy of your photo ID. That person also must present his or her own photo ID.

I completed a double major. Will I receive two diplomas?

No. Double majors within a single school/college are reflected on a single diploma. If one of the majors normally results in a Bachelor of Science and the other in a Bachelor of Arts, the diploma reflects the degree of Bachelor of Arts and Science.

Can anything prevent the release of my diploma?

Your diploma is not released if you have outstanding financial obligations to the University. Remember you can always check MyUCLA for information on any outstanding holds on your academic records.

Can I obtain more than one copy of my diploma?

No. Regental policy only allows graduates to have one diploma per degree.

My original diploma was lost or destroyed. How can I get a new one?

In such cases, a Replacement Diploma Request may be submitted to UCLA Registrar, Attn: Diploma Reorder, 1113 Murphy Hall, Box 951429, Los Angeles, CA 90095-1429.

You may order by fax at (310) 206-4520 or call (310) 825-1091 option 6 for questions only; you cannot order diplomas over the phone.

There is a fee for the replacement diploma, and it bears a reissue date and the signatures of the current officials of the state and University. Checks are payable to Regents-UC. You may request that the fee be billed to your BruinBill account.

An error was made on my diploma. How can I get it corrected?

You should return the diploma to the Registrar’s Office at 1113 Murphy Hall to have the error corrected. The special order diploma fee is assessed if the error was yours rather than the University’s.

My name has changed. How can I ensure that this will be reflected on my diploma?

A Legal Name Change or Correction form should be submitted to the Registrar's Office, 1113 Murphy Hall, by the last day of your degree expected term in order to be reflected on your diploma. Documentation supporting the name change is required. Students submitting name changes after that date must submit a Replacement Diploma Request to 1113 Murphy Hall; the special order diploma fee is assessed.
