The Office of the Registrar is responsible for reviewing and conferring degrees and for printing diplomas.
All students MUST apply for graduation through MedailleOne. Failure to do so by the published deadline could result in a delay of diploma and/or graduation conferral date. For detailed instructions, click here.
If you do not apply, we will not know you are ready to graduate and will not review your program or confer your degree.
Students applying for a certificate, will follow the same process of applying for graduation as degree seeking students. The fee for applying for a certificate is $10.00. For detailed instructions, click here.
Diplomas are ordered approximately two weeks after each conferral date. It typically takes 7 business days from the date of order for the diplomas to be mailed.
Diplomas are mailed certified mail "return receipt requested" to the address indicated on each graduate's graduation application. If your address changes between the time you apply for graduation and when your degree is conferred, please contact the Registrar's Office immediately so that your diploma is mailed to the right place.
A signature is required upon delivery. The post office will attempt delivery three times. If no one is there to sign for it, the diploma will be held at the post office for pick up. After a certain period of time, it will be mailed back to the Registrar's Office where it will be kept
Diplomas will be mailed once all financial, academic, and student affairs holds are resolved
Students who have lost their diploma may order a replacement. Medaille College does not issue "extra" diplomas. We will only issue a replacement if the diploma is lost, damaged, or stolen. Please use the Diploma Reorder Form to request a replacement.
Medaille College's annual commencement ceremony is a time for celebration and recognition of accomplishment. It is held in May of each year.
Students who graduated within the past year are eligible to participate. Also, students who are within six credits of degree completion and who are applied for June or August conferral are eligible to participate. Students must have an active graduation application to participate.
