Graduation Status & Diploma Information

Diplomas - Spring Quarter 2017

Undergraduate Students

Senior Exit Survey: Please complete the Senior Exit Survey as a final step in the graduation process. You will receive your diploma approximately 3-4 weeks after you have responded to the survey. This survey is an important tool for the University to gather information on the future plans of CPP graduates and to assess student satisfaction and improve institutional effectiveness. While we understand that your status as a recent graduate may still be in flux, we would like you to respond to the survey completely.

NOTE: Do not complete this survey if you are not graduating in the term specified above.

All Graduates

Mailing Address: Your diploma will be ordered after receipt of your completed survey and mailed to the address indicated in your student records. To ensure that you receive your diploma, please make any necessary changes to the "mailing address" in BroncoDirect within one week of receiving your diploma email.

Financial Obligations: Unpaid financial obligations to the University cause a hold to be placed on your student record and prevent the release of your diploma. Check your student account in BroncoDirect to confirm that you do not have any balance due. If you do have an outstanding balance, please settle your account to avoid delay in receiving your diploma and/or transcript (transcripts must be ordered separately). Email once you know that the financial hold on your record has been removed so that your diploma can be released.

Requesting to Pick Up Your Diploma: If you prefer to pick up your diploma, send an email to using Your Cal Poly Pomona email account. When sending your email, please include your BroncoNumber, an alternate personal email address, and a phone number where you can be reached. You will be notified via email when your diploma is available for pick up from One Stop Student Services.

Name on Diploma: 

1. If you need to make a simple change to the name on your diploma, such as adding a special character to a letter, truncating a middle name, or omitting a middle name entirely, please fill out and submit the Diploma Name Form to One Stop Student Services.

2. If you have changed your legal name, or if there is an error in your name which will be printed on your diploma, please visit the One Stop Student Services front counter with two forms of valid government issued photo identification which reflects the name as you wish it to be printed.

Duplicate Diploma: If you would like to purchase a duplicate copy(s) of your diploma, please fill out the Duplicate Diploma Request Form and follow the procedures outlined on the form.

Notarizations: If you will need a copy of your diploma notarized, please visit the Notarization of Documents page for detailed instructions on how to complete this process.

Previous Term Information:

Deferral Letters

Deferral letters are emailed to the student's CPP email account.  These letters contain details about the degree requirements that are missing and/or refer students to their Degree Progress Report (DPR).  These letters also indicate a deadline by which time these deficiencies must be cleared.  If the deficiencies are not cleared for the term that the student has applied to graduate, the student must submit a new Application for Graduation to be considered again for any future graduation date.
