AN IMPORTANT NOTE: If a UW-Madison college, school, department, or facility (e.g., the Memorial Library) has placed a "hold" on your student record, a "release" from the unit placing the hold will be required before a transcript can be provided. See also Fines & Holds--Where to Clear

Domestic Students: Diplomas for students graduating at the end of each semester will be mailed out approximately 12 weeks after graduation at no charge. Diplomas will be mailed to the student's HOME address, with the exception of international addresses (see below). If your diploma should be mailed to an address other than your home address, please provide a Diploma address. You can add or edit an address via your "Student Center".

Students should be sure that the HOME address is up-to-date through My Info or My UW.

International Students: Students who wish to have their diploma mailed outside of North American at no charge need to go into "Student Center" via "My UW" and check their Home Address. If they would like the diploma mailed to that address, update it as a Diploma Address. 

Questions of any kind regarding diploma mailing can be sent to:

Students who have "holds" placed on their records for any type of service will not receive their diplomas until those holds are cleared.

Information on where to clear holds.

Students will receive a diploma folder when they pick-up their cap and gown rental from the UW Bookstore or at their school/college ceremony.
