Diploma

King University’s Office of Registration and Records is focused on helping you progress to your next educational endeavor or career milestone.

The university has expanded our partnership with Parchment to combine our printed diplomas with a secure digital version. Digital awards offer many benefits for you. You now can view and share your degree with just a few clicks.

With Parchment, the leader in e-transcript exchange, the digital diploma is sent, and delivered electronically, securely, and confidentially. Just like the Parchment e-transcript service, the Blue Ribbon Verified PDS is an official record of your credentials. This type of verification ensures none of the information in the credential has been altered.

Once all degrees have been conferred, you will receive a notice like the one below. This notice will be sent to your King email account. The digital diploma allows you to share your accomplishments on social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, and LinkedIn. We encourage you to promote your talents in places where employers and future King Students will see.

In addition to your digital diploma, we are excited to provide you with a paper diploma. Official paper diplomas will be mailed your home address on file within 10 to 14 business days after you have received your digital copy.
