Important Information and Instructions:

You can access your CeDiploma by clicking the Register/Download now link above.

Your CeDiploma does not become available until your physical, hard copy diploma has been created. The physical diploma and the CeDiploma are created at the same time. This means that the same timelines apply to the physical and CeDiploma (e.g., if your physical diploma would normally ship two months after graduation, you will have access to your CeDiploma approximately two months after graduation). The advantage of the CeDiploma is that you do not have to wait for shipping; you can access the CeDiploma while you wait for your physical diploma to arrive.
