Special Typographic Marks

To identify name capitalization, punctuation, accent marks, or spacing on a diploma, use the Diploma Request feature on MyUCLA after the third week of the degree-expected term.

Marks that cannot be accommodated on MyUCLA should be entered on a Legal Name Change or Correction form and delivered to the Registrar’s Office, 1113 Murphy Hall, by the last day of the degree-expected term. There is no fee for this service.

Diploma Errors

If there is an error on the diploma, return it to the Registrar’s Office, 1113 Murphy Hall, for correction. If the error is the fault of the University, no fee is charged. If the error is the student’s fault, a special-order diploma fee applies.
