Getting your diploma
You can expect to get your diploma about six weeks after graduation. Each graduation application is individually reviewed to determine satisfaction of degree requirements and it takes about 4 weeks to audit and post degrees to your permanent record. If a degree requirement is not met, applicants will be notified by mail at the end of the graduation processing. Check in MySPC to make sure your degree has been posted before you request a transcript. Once the graduation audit is complete, it can take up to two weeks to print and prepare diplomas for mailing. Contact us at 727-302-6884 if you need a duplicate diploma ($15 fee) or if you have any questions. Diplomas are mailed to the address you provided on your graduation application, not from what you have in MySPC. If your address changes, email your new address to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
