All Diplomas Are Mailed After Graduation
Official diplomas will be mailed within 3-4 weeks following graduation. Email notification will be sent to the graduates’ GEM email accounts once diplomas are mailed. Diplomas are mailed in flat cardboard mailers. For added protection, diplomas are placed in a red, paper folder with the university’s seal embossed in gold foil. Diplomas are printed in standard sizes so that they may be easily framed. Students mus meet all financial obligations prior to the release of the diploma.

Information on the Diploma
The JSU diploma reflects the graduate's name, degree awarded, Latin honors, special honors in major, and the date the degree was conferred. Majors, minors, and concentrations are not listed on the diploma, but they are listed on the academic transcript. Please note that graduates with double majors are being awarded one degree; therefore, one diploma will be issued.
Graduates who participate in the commencement ceremony will be presented, on stage, with a red, padded diploma cover with the university’s crest embossed in gold foil.
Graduates who do not participate in the commencement ceremony, and wish to receive the diploma cover, may pick up the cover in the Registrar’s Office the week following graduation.
Graduates wishing to request a diploma cover be mailed, may submit the Diploma Cover Mailing form, along with payment for shipping and handling, to the Registrar’s Office.
