When will I get my diploma?

With the exception of Doctor of Medicine students, diploma distribution will not change and all graduates will receive their diplomas delivery four to six weeks after degree conferral. The diploma will be mailed to the diploma mailing address provided by the student on the application for degree. This address can be updated via Gibson Online at the “Update Diploma Address” link found under the Student tab. Doctor of Medicine students typically need to receive their diplomas on commencement day, and we are currently exploring all options for distribution.
