The Office of the Registrar oversees the release of University diplomas. Diplomas are mailed first class to the address provided on the Application for Graduation online form. Diplomas are mailed directly from the printing company and are not available in our office. If you have a hold on your account, your diploma will be mailed to our office and we will retain the diploma until the hold is resolved.

Diplomas are kept on file for only five years then destroyed.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I receive my diploma?

Diplomas will not be released if there is a financial hold on your records.

Diplomas are mailed approximately 3-4 months after the conclusion of the term in which you are scheduled to graduate. If you need official verification of your degree before you receive your diploma, please submit an Enrollment Verification Request (instructions are available on the University public website here).

Official transcripts reflect your degree once is awarded and are available before diplomas are ordered - this may also serve as a verification of graduation prior to the arrival of your diploma. 

Will my diplomas reflect University honors, if earned?

Diplomas reflect University honors (Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, and Summa Cum Laude) only.

Where will Pacific mail my diploma?

The diploma will be mailed to the address you provided the University on your Application to Graduate form. We are not responsible for lost or returned diplomas.

How do I get a replacement for my damaged or lost diploma?

You may request a reissuance of your diploma. If damaged, the original diploma must be returned. Please complete the Duplicate Diploma Request Form. Reissued diplomas adhere to the current format, and they bear the signatures of the current University officials, NO EXCEPTIONS. A reissue statement appears on all reissued diplomas. The reissued diploma fee is $50.00, check or money order only, payable to University of the Pacific.

What if I need someone else to pick up my diploma?

Important Note: In alignment with COVID-19 safety precautions, diplomas may not be picked up in the Office.

Upon return to typical operations, the onsite pick up protocol is as follows:

In writing, you must indicate your full name, date of birth, major, degree, month and year of graduation. You must also state the full legal name of the person you designate to pick up your diploma. The designee must present signed written authorization from the record owner, along with a copy of the record owner's valid photo ID. Our office will match your signature with records on file. Non matching signature requests will not be honored. Once the diploma is issued to the stated designee the University is no longer held responsible for diplomas lost or damaged.
