Diplomas

Graduates receive a diploma cover during the graduation ceremony. The Registrar's office issues actual diplomas approximately six weeks after the semester that the graduates complete their program of study. To receive your diploma, you must have completed a graduation application. Graduates will receive an email in their my.tridenttech.edu email account when their diploma or certificate is available for pick-up. The Registrar's office will mail diplomas to graduates who are unable to pick up their diploma or certificate after two weeks of receiving email.

To order a replacement diploma, complete a Duplicate Diploma Request Form and submit it to the Registrar's office. The cost of each replacement diploma is $10.
