- Calendar and Schedules
By decision of the President’s Council, EIU’s Diploma font has changed and will be a script font beginning Fall 2017.
Your EIU diploma includes the following information:
When you apply for graduation you provide the mailing address for your diploma. Any graduating student who needs to change the mailing address for their diploma should contact Kelly Harmon in the Office of the Registrar. The office is located at 1220 Old Main. She can also be reached by phone at 217-581-7496, or by email at email@example.com. If you are before the deadline to apply for your graduation term, you may also change your diploma address by reapplying for graduation through PAWS.
*Please note, changing your address in PAWS does not change the mailing address for diplomas, and changing your diploma address does not change your mailing address in PAWS.
Commencement information, including how to order a cap and gown, can be found on the Commencement website here.
If the original diploma was damaged in the mail, there is no charge for a replacement. Please return the damaged diploma along with the request form and the replacement will be mailed at no cost.
Students who need a duplicate diploma must provide our office with the following information filling out a Duplicate Diploma Request Form:
Duplicate diplomas can be ordered one of two ways:
If you wish to place your order online and pay by credit/debit card, please use the Online Duplicate Diploma Request Form.
If you would rather pay by cash/check/money order, you can use the Duplicate Diploma Request Form.
There is a $25.00 fee for each duplicate diploma you order. Duplicate diploma requests are normally processed within 3 - 5 business days.
Diploma covers are handed out at the commencement ceremonies. The actual diplomas are mailed to the address listed on your graduation application approximately six weeks after you graduate.
Note: Participation in the commencement ceremony does not mean you have completed degree requirements and graduated. Your graduation is not official until your certifying dean's office has sent notification of completion of all degree requirements to the Registrar's Office and the degree has been posted to your record.
