Undergraduate diplomas display your legal name, degree, major or area, and honors (if applicable). Minors and second majors or areas are not shown on your diploma, but they will be on your official transcript.

Graduate diplomas display your legal name, degree, and program of study.

You indicate how you want your name to be printed on your diploma when you apply for graduation. The first and last name on your diploma must be the legal name that is listed in MSU’s database. Middle names are optional on the diploma and a middle initial may be used in place of a full middle name.

Once your degree has been conferred you will receive notification to your MSU email account. Your diploma will be mailed to the address provided on your degree application about six weeks after your degree has been conferred. You will receive an email notification once your diploma has shipped.

Replacement diplomas may be ordered online.
