To ensure accurate delivery, please make sure your Home Address is correct by logging into One.IU and verifying your personal information here. Diplomas begin shipping four to six weeks after the degree conferral date.
Please note, if you have an outstanding balance with Indiana University or a document hold, you will need to satisfy this obligation before your diploma can be mailed to you.
For a nominal one-time fee, graduates have the option to purchase a certified electronic diploma or certificate (CeDiploma or CeCertificate) from CeCredential Trust. This permanent electronic copy does not replace the paper copy of your diploma or certificate. Rather it is an official, portable, and publicly verifiable image of your document to complement the printed credential. Future employers, state government licensing agencies, or any other foreign or domestic entity that wishes to validate your degree can independently do so for each CeDiploma and/or CeCertificate, free of charge. Just search “CeCredential” in One.IU or visit cecredential.iu.edu.
