Do you take a picture when my graduate walks across the stage?
Commencement photos are taken by Auburn University’s Photographic Services and will be available online. Please visit Photo & Video Services for additional information.
Some of my family members cannot attend the ceremonies. Is there a way they can still watch it live?
Students with family members who cannot attend commencement exercises can direct them to live streaming video of the ceremony. The broadcast requires the free RealPlayer software. The video stream will begin at approximately 15 minutes prior to the ceremony.
Where can an RV or bus park?
All buses or RVs must park in the West Village Parking Lot located on the west side of campus. Buses and RVs are allowed to drop off passengers at the bus turn-in on War Eagle Way prior to parking in the West Village Parking Lot. Buses and RVs may not park in the Auburn Arena Parking Lot or the Beard-Eaves-Memorial Parking Lot.
When will I receive my diploma?
You will receive your diploma about 6 – 8 weeks after graduation. Please visit Diploma Shipping for additional information. NOTE: If you graduate in Fall Term, you will receive your diploma about 8 – 10 weeks after graduation due to the holiday schedule.
What is the size of the diploma?
Diplomas are 17” (wide) by 13” (high).
Is a minor printed on the diploma?
No. Minors are printed on the transcript only.
Diploma Questions about Double Majors or Concurrent Degrees
Double Major – one diploma with two majors indicated
However, if the secondary major is in a different college/school than the primary major or is in the same college/school as the primary major but has different degree titles, then only the primary major information will be reflected on the diploma.
Note: The transcript will reflect both majors.
Concurrent Degrees – two diplomas (one for each degree)
I walked on Sunday or Monday during the Spring graduation ceremonies; however, my diploma shows Saturday’s date. Is this a mistake?
The university issues a gold honor cord to any undergraduate student who is potentially eligible for Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude or Summa Cum Laude. Being issued an honor cord does not represent a final certification of graduation honors on the student’s diploma or transcript. Official honor certification is finalized after the commencement ceremonies once the degree audit is complete.
