The following Online Diploma Service is available through our official diploma vendor, the Michael Sutter Company.
Check your Orion Student Services Center for holds. All holds MUST be cleared in order to receive your diploma. If a student clears a hold after the certification date for the term, the student must notify the Graduation Team that the hold has been cleared. The diploma will only be ordered in the next ordering cycle after the Graduation Team receives an email notification from the student. Orders will be placed at noon on Wednesdays unless that day is a holiday, at which time the diplomas will be ordered the following business day.
All diplomas that are ordered for graduating students and any Commencement publications will be printed your primary name in Orion. Diploma re-orders for alumni will be ordered with the full primary name in Orion. Alumni that need to update their primary name will need to update their primary name (PDF) before placing a diploma re-order through the UT Dallas Marketplace.
Students wishing to change their name with the university must follow the standard name change procedures. This applies to all name changes including those resulting from marriage, divorce, or the correction of incorrect name submissions at the time of admission. This also includes capitalization and punctuation issues.
Names changed after the diploma order has been placed will not be reflected on the diplomas that were ordered. Graduating students should submit changes by the published deadline in the semester that they are graduating. Students who miss this deadline will be required to place a diploma re-order and pay the associated fee to have a new copy of their diploma mailed.
For graduating students, all diplomas will be mailed to the ‘Home’ address on file with UT Dallas at the time of the diploma order. If you need to change your ‘Home’ address, please update it in the Orion Student Services Center by the deadline listed on the Graduating Students webpage. Addresses changed after the diploma order has been placed may be returned to our diploma vendor, but there is no guarantee.
If you would like to order an additional diploma or your diploma is damaged or lost, you can pay the appropriate fees and re-order your diploma in the Online Diploma Service. Please note: Diploma mailers are larger than the average size mailbox which could cause the mailer to be held at your local post office or apartment leasing office, if applicable. If you need a certified electronic copy of your diploma (eDiploma) please email [email protected]. E-Diplomas will be available upon request after diplomas have been ordered for the semester you are graduating in.
