What to Expect

Diplomas and Covers

Your diploma will be mailed to your home address between 8 and 12 weeks after your graduation date. Be sure to confirm or update your home address in One.IU.

Every graduate who attends Commencement will receive a complimentary IU diploma cover. More diploma covers and frames are available for purchase along with other keepsakes.


The Commencement ceremonies are monumental events that celebrate all of the graduates. That’s several thousand friends and classmates coming together to celebrate! With that many graduates, it is not possible to read all of their names.

For a more focused event, consider attending your school’s recognition event. These programs complement the Commencement ceremony and often include a reading of names.
