Large Diplomas

Standard diplomas are provided by the college, free of cost. Students who wish to order a large (14” x 17”) diploma in addition to the standard diploma may do so for $8.00 each. All large diploma orders will be charged to your Bursar account.

Graduates who do not wish to order a large diploma should put “0” in the following blank, so there is no question.

Number of Large Diplomas to Order:


In order to make name changes, students must submit a copy of a marriage license, new driver's license, Social Security card, divorce decree or court order. Your full legal name is required for the diploma.

For students who will be getting married after the diploma deadline, the Office of Student Affairs will not order large diplomas until after the name is legally changed. A replacement of the standard diploma with the new name will be ordered at that time as well. Students may order large diplomas at the $8.00 rate (plus shipping) after a name change for up to one year after graduation. After that, large diplomas are $50.00 each.  Students who plan to undergo a name change after the deadline should email the Office of the Registrar.
