Ordering Diplomas

All CWRU diplomas are issued via the Registrar’s Office, while frames can be purchased at the bookstore.

From May 15–19, our students’ hard work at Case Western Reserve University will culminate with all the pomp and circumstance their accomplishments deserve.

Graduation Application 

All students completing their coursework this academic year must apply for graduation (degree conferral) in SIS, regardless of whether they plan to walk in the spring diploma ceremony.  

For students, wanting to participate in the spring diploma ceremony be sure to find your ceremony and remember registration opens on March 1. 


Students participating in diploma ceremonies are required to wear regalia. Students are encouraged to attend the university grad fair or doctoral fittings to order regalia or may order online or visit the University Bookstore.
