After the third week of the degree-expected term, students can access the MyUCLA Diploma Request feature or use a Diploma Mail Request form to provide diploma release instructions and select a delivery method. Students can request in-person pickup, agent pickup, or delivery. Instructions for diploma delivery should be provided no later than one month after the last day of the degree-award term.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Submit the request in person or by mail as appropriate, with payment if applicable, to a diploma processor in the Registrar’s Office.
No-fee and BruinBill charge orders only may be faxed to 310-206-4520.
