Academic Information that Appears on a Diploma

  • Student's Diploma Name
  • Degree Type
  • Major (or Majors if more than one). Note that minors and concentrations are not printed on the diploma.
  • Latin Honors (if applicable)
  • All diplomas include the official University Seal, Date of Degree Conferral, and the signatures of the current President of the Board of Trustees, University President, Executive Vice President and Provost, and the Dean of the College/School.

Receiving Your Diploma

  • All LMU graduates will receive one diploma per degree earned. Diplomas are issued to graduates after the Office of the University Registrar completes the degree conferral process (awarding of a degree once it is determined a student has met all degree requirements for graduation). These are mailed approximately four to five weeks after degree conferral.
  • Students will have the option to purchase the digital copy of their diploma - CeDiploma. See below.
  • Diplomas will not be released until students have no academic or financial holds on their records.

Digital Diplomas and Certificates Option

  • LMU offers certified electronic credentials, known as a CeDiploma or CeCertificate. It is an exact digital version of your physical LMU diploma or certificate, using real-time, time and date stamped, fraud-proof validation. It is secured using Adobe digital signature technology to ensure trust in the qualifications. You may share as often as you wish, like sending to employers, as well as posting to social media sites like LinkedIn, if desired. There is a separate, one-time fee for the purchase of the electronic credentials.
  • Visit the digital diploma page for ordering information.

Duplicate Diploma Order

Duplicate diplomas may be ordered online. Diplomas are shipped via USPS standard delivery which does not provide tracking or delivery confirmation.  There is a rush option where the diploma will be ordered and sent by FedEx. Records prior to 1988 will require additional time for research as these records are maintained on another platform.
