The Registrar’s Office oversees the distribution of university diplomas, in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Most diplomas are mailed to the permanent address on record six to eight weeks after a degree is conferred.

The student name that will appear on the official USC diploma will match the name on the student’s STARS report and USC academic transcript. Students who wish to change their name as it appears in the Student Information System (SIS) must submit a form of government-authorized identification to gtv@usc.edu. The name change request must be completed before the student has graduated.

Certain activity restrictions or an invalid address will prevent your diploma from being printed until the problem is corrected. Any restrictions attached to your account can be found via the “Restrictions” link in OASIS, which can be accessed through the myUSC portal.

The askUSC portal will help you find answers to our most commonly asked questions – and even some you may not have thought about. If you have any questions, or wish to email us, we invite you to askUSC

Note: Current USC students must use their official university email address (username@usc.edu) for all official university communications.
