Withholding Diplomas and Official Transcripts from Students
- Executive Vice President and Provost
- Director, Office of the Registrar
- See Contacts Section
The University will not issue diplomas or official transcripts to students with financial obligations of $200 or more, or to students who have not satisfied student conduct or academic integrity sanctions.
Once a student satisfies the financial obligation or the outstanding sanction, the responsible office will remove the hold and the Office of the Registrar may issue the diploma and/or the official transcript.
Reason for Policy
The University expects students to meet any financial and/or student conduct and academic integrity obligations to the institution, both during their enrollment and upon graduation. Withholding the diploma and official transcript for not meeting these responsibilities is consistent with these expectations.
