Diploma

Upon completion of a degree, students will receive one complimentary diploma. 

All financial/academic holds must be cleared before a diploma can be mailed. Check your KSIS Student Center for hold and departmental contact information. (How-to)

Students have 90 days after graduation to clear holds without delaying the mailing of a diploma. If holds are cleared after such time, students will need to notify the Office of the Registrar to arrange the release and mailing of a diploma. Diplomas will be retained for two years after the graduation date and will then be destroyed. After that time, any request for a diploma by the student will incur all charges associated with ordering a duplicate or replacement diploma.

Once a student has left the university, names can only be changed on a diploma with supporting legal documentation of a name change (i.e. a copy of a marriage license, a court order or divorce decree, a current passport, a driver’s license, or a Social Security card).
