Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I have to apply for graduation and pay the Graduation Application Fee?

All students who wish to have their degree posted must complete an Application for Graduation. This is necessary regardless of intent to participate in the commencement ceremony. The Graduation Application Fee is non-refundable and covers the administrative time needed to process the application, run a degree audit, track the student’s progress and post the degree to the student’s transcript and postage to mail the diploma. Please visit the page for your degree level for more specific information:

When will my degree be posted?

Degrees will not be evaluated for verification or conferral and diplomas will not be released until all financial obligations are met. Otherwise, degrees will be posted after all requirements have been satisfied. Concordia posts degrees at the completion of the regular terms. Degrees are not posted mid-term, even if a program ends mid-term. Please allow 4-6 weeks after the end of the term for the final posting of your degree and make future plans accordingly.

When and how do I get my diploma?

Official diplomas are issued 6-8 weeks after the degree is posted at the end of the term provided that you have no outstanding financial obligations to the University. They are mailed to the current address on file unless special arrangements are made. Diplomas are not issued at any commencement ceremonies.

How do I order another diploma?

Whether you changed your name or lost your diploma, replacement diplomas are available by completing the Diploma Reorder Form. The cost for a replacement diploma is $25 and takes 6-8 weeks to obtain.

How do I order transcripts?

Transcripts can be ordered in person at the Registrar's Office or via the request form online.

How do I update my address?

You may update your address in MyRecords (be sure to use the “Current Address” designation), submit online, email your new address to [email protected] using your Eagles email account, or mail address changes to:
