The IUPUI Office of the Registrar maintains the official name and address records for all students. Your ‘degree name’ is the name used on your diploma and in the commencement program. It is your responsibility to verify that your preferred name is listed under ‘degree name.’ You may use a variation of your legal name for your diploma and the program (e.g. your middle initial rather than your full middle name).
If you would like a variation of your legal name on your diploma, log in to One.IU and go to Personal Information > Biographical Information > Names.
Students whose names have been legally changed should contact the Office of the Registrar and email the updated information to firstname.lastname@example.org when completed.
The expected graduation date is the term in which the student believes they will complete their graduation requirements (all courses completed and grades processed).
There is one graduation ceremony hosted a year, in May. Summer (August) graduates are invited to participate in the May ceremony before their degree completion. Fall (December) graduates are invited to participate in the May ceremony after their degree completion.
Diplomas/Certificates take several months to be printed and mailed to students. We ask for your patience during this time. Diplomas will be mailed directly from the printer to students. Please ensure your student home address is updated with the registrar.
