Diploma Mailing Information

Due to the volume of diplomas that need to be mailed under these unprecedented circumstances, we cannot hold diplomas. If you do not add a diploma mailing address in my.harvard by the deadline, you automatically consent to receive your diploma at your permanent address. If you are in transition, please consider adding the address of a trusted family member or friend as your diploma mailing address. If you run into any issues, email enrollment@fas.harvard.edu. You can edit your diploma mailing address as many times as needed until the deadline passes. Diplomas for May degree candidates will be mailed within 2 weeks of the conferral date.
