Spring 2022

Grades are due by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, May 18, 2022

After grades are submitted by faculty (May 18, 2022), it takes approximately five business days to “finalize” grades. As we begin the grading process, you may see grades appear in your Student Center, but grades are not considered official until the grading process has been finalized. We estimate that official grades will be available on May 26, 2022.

Degree processing (June through August)

After grades are official, it takes about 6-8 weeks to clear degrees for all of the students eligible for graduation this term. Once a degree has posted, it will immediately appear on both official and unofficial transcripts.

Expect diplomas (July through October)

Diplomas are printed and mailed approximately 5 weeks after a degree is cleared and posted.

Degree Verification

Transcripts are the official record of any degree(s) and coursework completed. As a general rule, when institutions and potential employers require proof of degree completion, the most useful tool is the official transcript, not the diploma. The diploma is a ceremonial document, while the transcript is the official record.  
Humboldt does not provide scanned nor emailed diplomas.
To order or learn more about Official transcripts, see Official Transcripts.  Rush Services are available. Official transcripts may be ordered anytime. However, they will not be released during the grade processing period.
To learn how to view or print an Unofficial Transcript, see Unofficial Transcript
