If you meet all graduation requirements, two to three months after the graduation filing quarter of candidacy ends, your degree will be posted to your academic record in MyCSUEB. The Office of the Registrar will mail diplomas to candidates who have completed all degree requirements six to eight weeks after your degree is posted to your record. Your legal name, which appears on your official academic record and transcript, will be printed on the diploma.
For alumni who wish to reorder copies of their diploma, you may submit the Diploma Reorder Form (pdf) and payment by mail to:
California State University East Bay
25800 Carlos Bee Blvd.,
Hayward CA 94542
Verify your Name and Address in MyCSUEB
Diplomas are mailed to the permanent address of record with the University. Please verify correct spelling of your name and accuracy of your permanent mailing address in MyCSUEB on the Graduate Status page.
Changes to your permanent mailing address may be made directly in MyCSUEB. To ensure your diploma is sent to a new address, changes must be received by the last day of instruction of your final term. Address changes made after your last term of instruction may not guarantee delivery of your diploma, and charges for a reorder may apply.
For legal name changes to your official academic record and diploma, complete the Personal Data Change Form and attach appropriate documentation no later than the fourth week of instruction of your last term.
