Note for International Students: If you don't already have one on file, you'll need to add a "Diploma" address. After your degree is awarded, this is the address to which your diploma will be mailed. Click the Add/Update Address link on your confirmation page to add a "Diploma" address. Or, go to MyUW>Student Center>Profile>Addresses.
