Receiving Your Diploma

All University of Illinois graduates with no outstanding University charges will receive one diploma per degree earned, free of charge.


University of Illinois policy prevents mailing a diploma if you have a past-due account. Contact University Student Financial Services and Cashiers Operations with questions about your account balance. Once your account has been cleared, you need to contact the Office of the Registrar by phone 217-333-6383 or email by providing your UIN, date the account was cleared, and confirmation of the address for delivery of the diploma.

Delivery of Your Diploma

University of Illinois diplomas are 8.5 × 11 inches and sent by first-class mail to a student’s diploma address approximately 9 weeks after your conferral date. Please review this address and update as necessary before leaving the University. If you have not received your diploma within 9 weeks of the conferral date, please contact the Office of the Registrar.

Check Your Order Status

Check the status of your ordered diploma through our diploma printing company.

After mailing, if your diploma is returned to the Office of the Registrar, you will be responsible for providing a corrected address and paying for any forwarding mail charges as well as processing fees. If your diploma is not returned to the Office of the Registrar and 90 days have passed since the mailing date, you will be responsible for providing the correct address and paying for the cost of the replacement diploma.
