Diploma Covers

Diploma covers will be handed out to each graduate during the commencement ceremony.  The covers are empty at the time of the ceremony.


Diplomas will be mailed after degrees audited  and final grades have been posted by the Registrar's Office.  Diplomas are mailed to your permanent address on file approximately six to eight weeks after graduation.  Verify your permanent address on file at MyNMU.  If the permanent address on file, at the time of graduation, is not correct, diplomas not received will have to be re-ordered at the cost of $15. 

Duplicate Electronic Diplomas (as of May 2018 class)

Students have the option to order an eDiploma, which is a signed and certified PDF of their NMU diploma.  Graduates will receive an email from our diploma vendor, the Michael Sutter Company, once their original NMU diploma is mailed.  The email will provide the student with a secure login ID and a link for ordering an eDiploma.  There is a one-time $5.00 fee (per degree) and the eDiploma is accessible for life.

Please note, before you can order an eDiploma, all financial obligations must be paid, all holds removed, and original diploma has been issued.

Duplicate Paper Diplomas 

Duplicate diplomas can be ordered via the Registrar's Office for $15.00 per copy/per degree.  Please submit a completed Duplicate Diploma form, including your credit/debit card information by mail to Northern Michigan University Registrar, 1401 Presque Isle Avenue, Marquette, Michigan 49855, by fax to (906) 227-2231, or by email to degaudit@nmu.edu.

Please note, duplicate paper diplomas take approximately two to three weeks from date payment is processed.
