Diplomas, Diploma Covers and Programs
Why don’t I receive my diploma at commencement? When will I receive my diploma?
Diplomas are printed and mailed to official UNT mailing addresses within eight weeks of commencement following the receipt of final grades and after verification that the candidate has met all requirements for graduation. It is the responsibility of the graduate to ensure the TAMS office has the correct mailing address on file after graduation. A Diploma cover embossed with "Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science" will be included.
Will my guests or I receive programs at my ceremony?
Printed programs will not be distributed at commencement ceremonies, but a digital version of the program will be available at https://tams.unt.edu/grad.
