Processing - Diplomas & Transcripts

Spring 2023 grades are official!

Spring 2023 Grades

Grade Processing 

Grades are official (May 22, 2023)

After grades are submitted by faculty (May 17, 2023), 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. 

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 been posted, it will immediately appear on both official and unofficial transcripts.

Expect diplomas (late June through September)

Graduation, which is the awarding of a degree, should not be confused with participation in the commencement ceremony. Commencement is held before grades are official and all degree requirements can be verified. See Commencement to find out more about the commencement ceremonies at Cal Poly Humboldt. 

New job? Grad School? Need your degree posted quickly?

Place an order for at least one transcript with Parchment and select "Hold until degree is posted”. Your degree requirements will be reviewed within five business days after we receive notice of your order from Parchment.

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. 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
