Diplomas | LSU Commencement


Coming this spring, the university will introduce a redesigned diploma that both modernizes the document and hearkens back to the traditional roots of LSU. In conjunction with the redesign, we are pleased to be introducing digital credentials that can be shared on social media to celebrate your big day! As part of this evolution in process, diplomas will now be mailed approximately 15 business days after the various commencement ceremonies. While diplomas will not be handed out on stage, each graduate attending the ceremony will receive a diploma cover and congratulatory message from campus leadership serving as a keepsake of the special day.

In order to ensure timely receipt of your printed diploma and your digital credential, please make sure to fill out our mailing survey below.
