A student may not receive more than one copy of the diploma.

Diplomas are available approximately three months after the degree-award date. Diplomas with college or department honors require extra printing time. A diploma is not released if the student has outstanding financial obligations to the University. Check the student record on MyUCLA for outstanding holds.

Delivery Options

Students can request in-person pickup, agent pickup, or delivery.

Mail Delivery

The student should confirm the delivery address and select regular or express delivery. There is no fee to deliver a diploma by USPS first class mail to a U.S. address. Fees apply for other types of delivery; payment can be made by check or charged to a BruinBill account.

The diploma is delivered in a large, 9½-inch by 12½-inch envelope. To avoid bends, creases, or other damage to the diploma, graduates should ensure that their mail delivery location can accommodate these dimensions or choose a different delivery address.

In-Person Pickup

Once available, the diploma may be picked up at the Registrar’s Office, 1113 Murphy Hall, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. A photo ID is required.

Agent Pickup

A student can authorize another individual to order and/or pick up the diploma. The student must provide that individual with a Diploma Agent Authorization that includes the agent’s name, the student’s signature, and a copy of the student’s photo ID. The agent must also present a photo ID.
