Additional Graduation Information

Privacy Settings and Your Name

Your privacy settings in MyNIU determine whether or not your name appears in the commencement program. If you restrict the release of your name in your privacy settings, your name won't be published or appear in the commencement program. The deadline to make changes to your privacy settings is the same as the deadline for submitting your graduation application (also referred to as application for degree).

Your Diploma

In order to receive your diploma, you must clear any monetary or other obligations to NIU. Your diploma will be mailed to you four to six weeks after the end of the term. Your diploma will be sent to your permanent address on file with Registration and Records. You can change your address in MyNIU, or by contacting Registration and Records at 815-753-0681 or To see when your diploma was mailed, visit the Michael Sutter website.
