Diploma Covers For The Class of 2023: Limited Time Only While Supplies Last
If you would like a special edition, 75th anniversary diploma cover for your diploma, you are in luck! We have a few extra covers in the Graduation Office. The office will be open December 8 - December 20 from 8:30am - 4:00pm for pick up.
Because we have a limited supply, we can only give one (1) per student, even if you have earned multiple diplomas. These special edition, red diploma covers were the same ones handed out at the commencement ceremony in June.
Pick-up is available for two weeks. However, don't delay, once all the covers are gone, they are gone. We cannot mail these covers, they are available for pick up only. Please bring a picture ID.
