It takes approximately six to eight weeks from the close of the term for colleges to review graduation applications and submit their decisions to the registrar’s office for processing. Diplomas are ordered once a student has been approved and a degree officially conferred and posted.
Diplomas are mailed and emailed directly to students at the most current address provided through their myUH student account. To ensure proper delivery of your diploma, Parchment will send email notifications to confirm your mailing address. You will have 72 hours after the receipt of the email to confirm your mailing address. Parchment will also send you an email notification when diplomas have been mailed so you can track your paper diploma. It’s important to keep contact information updated in myUH to avoid shipment delays.
Note: A fee is applicable to diplomas requested as a result of a diploma name change. Diploma names must be provided at the time of completing the online graduation application. Please make sure to submit requested documentation to the Office of the University Registrar. Failure to do so may result in a $25 diploma order fee for subsequent name changes.
Ordering Replacement Diplomas
The University of Houston offers both digital and paper diplomas. Effective Sept. 1, 2009, there is a $25 fee for all replacement diplomas ordered (postmarked by or after this date). This fee does not apply to the initial diploma mailed upon graduation. All replacement diplomas must be ordered online.
Note: The names and signatures of the Board of Regents Chair, Dean and/or President may differ based on your graduation date. Replacement Diplomas will be reproduced with the name and signatures of the current Board of Regents Chair, Dean and President. The Office of the University Registrar cannot print diplomas with former Board of Regents Chairs, Deans and Presidents listed.
Additional fees apply for special services such as express delivery and apostille notarization. Diplomas will be sent electronically or on paper by mail, to the requested destination.
Note: The University of Houston does not release copies of diplomas received from other institutions. If you need a diploma from a prior institution, you must contact that institution.
