Graduation announcements may be ordered though Herff Jones.

Announcements are also sold through local bookstores.  Personalized announcements take about three weeks to process and should be ordered in advance.


The university provides a free printed diploma to each student after graduation. Diplomas are mailed to the graduate’s permanent address or the Diploma Address if one has been created by the student in Wolverine Access. Diplomas are mailed approximately six to eight weeks following the commencement ceremony, or graduation term.

Doctor of philosophy diplomas are distributed at the University-wide Winter Commencement (Fall Term) and at the University Graduate Exercises (Winter Term).  More information can be found here.
