Diplomas are mailed approximately six weeks after graduation to the mailing address listed on your myBoiseState account. The Registrar’s Office is not responsible for diplomas lost or damaged in the mail. If your diploma is returned to the Registrar’s Office, you will need to make arrangements to pick it up if you live locally, or have it resent if you are out of the area. All returned diplomas will be kept for one year, after which time they will be destroyed.
Boise State contracts with an authorized third-party vendor, Michael Sutter Company, to print and mail diplomas. When diplomas ship from Michael Sutter students receive notification through BroncoMail indicating the mailing date and address, as well as a secondary email that includes a secure ID that can be used to purchase an eDiploma.
Items Printed on the Diploma
Degree, major, and academic honors appear on the diploma. Minors earned are printed on the transcript, but not on the diploma.
Size of Diploma
Diplomas measure 11 x 8.5 inches for associate and baccalaureate degrees and undergraduate and graduate certificates and 14 x 11 inches for masters and doctoral degrees.
Double Majors and Certificates
Graduates earning more than one degree (e.g. B.S. and B.A.) will receive separate diplomas for each. Graduates earning a single degree with multiple majors (e.g. B.S. in Accounting and Finance) will receive only one diploma with both majors printed on it. Graduates earning multiple certificates will receive one diploma with all certificates listed.
