Diplomas and Certificates

After a degree or academic certificate is awarded, the University will order the ceremonial diploma or certificate on the student’s behalf. All degrees and certificates will be sent to the current mailing address on file. For information on updating the mailing address, please go to Update Your Personal Information.

The official diploma will list the following information:

  • Student name
  • Degree
  • Major
  • Honors

The information listed on the diploma must match the official UNT record. Students completing more than one major will have a separate diploma for each major. Minors and concentrations are not listed on the official diploma. Once completed, minors are listed on the official UNT transcript.

Name on Diploma

Current students may update the name for their diploma through their online graduation application. Former students ordering a new diploma may specify their name on the order form.

There are some restrictions as to what changes can be made to the diploma name. Students may change their first and middle name, but the last name must be the primary legal name. If you have completed a legal name change, please update the primary legal name on your UNT record. For further instructions please go to Update Your Personal Information.
