Degree candidates need to file a formal Diploma Application Form with the Registrar's Office (Third Floor, Kehoe Administration Building) by Saturday, April 30, 2016 to guarantee their names will be listed in the 2016 Winter Commencement Program.
Applications will be accepted after that date, but there is no guarantee that the names will be included if students wait until the last minute to apply.
Your hometown city, state, and country are printed in the Commencement Program. This information is selected from the mailing address you have on file with the college. If you want different hometown information listed in the program, please email the Registrar’s Office as soon as possible. Note: If you apply too late in the semester, your name may not appear in the Commencement Program.
If your address changes after you have applied for graduation, you must email the Registrar’s Office at firstname.lastname@example.org promptly to request your diploma be mailed to your new address. Diplomas are mailed six to eight weeks after degree conferral.
Now you’re ready to submit your Online Graduation Application. (Screenshots of the application are available on the MyPlattsburgh homepage under the "Degree Audit/Information" header).
Final degree audits are completed generally one week after final grades are due. Please monitor your SUNY Plattsburgh email accounts for results.
The official College Diploma is not presented at Commencement. Instead, a diploma cover will be handed out to all degree candidates.
Diplomas will be mailed to home addresses approximately two to three months after the degree date. Students completing their coursework in May will receive their diplomas in July. Students completing coursework in August will receive diplomas in November. Students completing coursework in December will receive their diplomas in February.
