Diplomas will be mailed 6-8 business weeks after the end of the term via the U.S. Postal Service to all graduates who meet degree requirements and do not have outstanding financial obligations. An email confirmation will be sent to the graduate's FAU email account once the diploma has been mailed.

Please note that diplomas are sent to the diploma address on file. Be sure to keep your diploma address current. Verifying and/updating your Diploma address is easy! Log into MyFAU, click FAU Self-Service, then Personal Information and finally View/Update Contact Information. You are responsible for ensuring that your diploma mailing address is correct. FAU will make two attempts to deliver the diploma free of charge. If the diploma is returned to FAU, it will be held for up to two semesters before it is destroyed. You will be required to purchase a replacement diploma.

If your diploma is printed incorrectly due to university error or it is damaged in route, you may return the incorrect or damaged diploma to the Office of the Registrar for one complimentary replacement. Please email commencement@fau.edu for further direction.
