Graduate holds her diploma
At the commencement ceremony you will receive a diploma cover with a letter from the President. Your official diploma will be mailed to you within 10 weeks of the end of the term in which you graduate by the University at no cost.

Your official diploma will list your primary/legal name and not the preferred name that you may have given DePaul.  Visit the DePaul Central website​ if you wish to change the legal name on your university record.   

Additionally, the diploma will list the degree awarded, any honors designation, your conferral date, and the signature of the President, Secretary, and Dean.
