When students complete their degrees at Portland State University, the degree information is displayed on their transcripts as soon as the graduation certification process is complete, normally 4-6 weeks after final grades are posted. Note that this is prior to diplomas being prepared, which normally happens at the end of the term following the graduation term.
All degree recipients are notified by mail of diploma availability, after which diplomas can be picked up in the Degree Requiremtns office (104 Neuberger Hall). Students may also request to have their diploma mailed by submitting the online Diploma Mail Authorization form. This form can only be submitted after receiving notification that diplomas are available. Note that a secure login (Odin username and password) is required to access this form. Students who encounter log in difficulties may request to have the Diploma Mail Authorization form mailed or emailed to them. Send requests to firstname.lastname@example.org, specify "Diploma Mail Authorization form request" in the subject line, and include name and mailing address or email to which the form should be sent. For additional questions, contact the Office of the Registrar at 503.725.3511.
