Diploma FAQ
  • Diplomas will not be distributed at the graduation ceremony. One diploma per student is printed.
  • Final grades for graduates are not due until after the Graduation ceremony. Therefore, once all graduates have been verified and honors have been finalized, diplomas will be ordered.
  • Diplomas are normally mailed out to students six weeks after their conferral date. If our delivery comes earlier, we will contact you by email (King student email account) about the new shipment date.
  • Once diplomas are received, they will be placed in the mail to the HOME address on file.

Your name will appear on your diploma as indicated on your ‘Application for Degree’ form.
