Degrees are conferred at the end of each semester and posted to student records within 10 weeks following the end of the semester for which you applied for graduation. 

All diplomas will be mailed to the mailing address on file approximately 10 weeks after the end of the semester and are mailed via USPS. Students are responsible for ensuring their mailing address is correct. 

Should a student need proof of their degree prior to the release of their diploma, they should request a degree verification or an official transcript.

Diplomas and transcripts will not be released until all financial obligations to any University of Hawai’i System campus have been cleared.

You may pay for your diploma fee(s) in MyUH Services.

Duplicate Diplomas

To order an additional diploma(s), complete the Replacement Diploma Form (PDF) and submit it to the Office of the Registrar along with payment. Your degree must be awarded and must not have an outstanding financial obligation in order for you to order a duplicate diploma.

The fee for a duplicate diploma is $30 per diploma. Please note that if you order both an English and a Hawaiian diploma, you will be charged $30 for each diploma (e.g. $60 for both an English and Hawaiian diploma).

Please allow 12 to 14 weeks for processing. Diplomas will be in the current format with signatures of current university officials.

Note: Hawaiian language diplomas are only available to UH Mānoa alumni awarded degrees from Spring 1995 to present. The student’s name, degree, and major, as well as official university signatures appear in English.
