A Message from Degree Services Regarding Diplomas

Congratulations on your tremendous achievement! Your diploma will be mailed to you as soon as it’s available. However, diplomas are delayed due the COVID-19 pandemic, and we do not have a timeline for when they will be available. We apologize for the delay. We are working to process and mail diplomas as soon as possible. You will receive a notification email once your diploma is available for delivery. To ensure receipt of your diploma, please make sure your mailing address is current in UAOnline.

Diploma Covers, Diploma Frame Discount Certificates and Alumni Welcome

Graduates will soon receive in the mail their diploma cover or a discount certificate for a diploma frame (depending on which you chose in the survey sent out in late March). If you did not fill out the survey, you will automatically receive a diploma cover. Also included in the mailing is a welcome from the UAA Alumni Association.
