August and December 2020 Graduates
The University of Michigan will be providing complimentary electronic diplomas to the August and December 2020 graduates on all three campuses. This is in addition to the complimentary regular diploma that will be mailed to graduates.
The eDiploma is a signed, certified, and secure PDF of the diploma. It is an official and legal electronic document that can be verified through the Office of the Registrar and shared with employers, family, and friends.
The degrees will be posted by the registrars of each campus following degree audits. After auditors have confirmed that degree requirements are complete, graduates will receive communication that their paper diplomas are being processed and that their eDiplomas are available to download. For the Ann Arbor Campus, the August graduates will have access to their eDiplomas in mid-September and the December 2020 graduates will receive access in late-January. They will be provided at no charge.
The University of Michigan’s official diploma vendor for most schools and colleges is the Michael Sutter Company. The School of Medicine has a different vendor for its MD graduates due to unique characteristics of the diplomas; MD graduates will not receive an eDiploma.
