There are no formal commencement exercises held at the end of the summer or fall terms at Emory University, except for the School of Medicine. Diplomas for all other summer and fall graduates will be mailed once final clearance has been received from your school.
Summer and Fall diplomas will be mailed to the diploma address listed in OPUS; if there is no diploma address it will be mailed to the permanent address listed in OPUS. Students should update OPUS with the most current address and email information, as this will be where you will receive all commencement information. Please allow approximately eight to ten weeks after the end of the term to receive your diploma. Once diplomas have been shipped, you will receive an email confirmation along with a tracking number for your convenience.
The Office of the Registrar will order a diploma, with the appropriate honors notation, after degrees have been certified and we receive the official honor recipient list from schools. The honor diploma will be mailed, by U.S. Postal Service, to your diploma address in OPUS. Please allow eight to ten weeks processing time, after your conferral date, to receive your diploma. Honor diplomas are ordered for the following schools: Emory College of Arts and Sciences, School of Business (undergraduates only), School of Nursing (undergraduates only), School of Medicine, and School of Law.
