Request for Certificate of Completion
Depending on when you file, it may be several months before your degree is officially conferred and posted to your transcript. A Certificate of Completion is an official document we issue which provides evidence to a third party that you have completed your degree requirements prior to the degree being posted to your transcript. It is useful for jobs, post-docs, work visas, etc., who require proof of a degree.

Please note that we will not issue a Certificate of Completion after the degree has been posted to your record.
