Diploma Degrees, Majors and Honors

Degree and Major

  • Each diploma includes both the degree earned and major field of study.
  • Diplomas for students whose degrees already include their major field of study in the degree title, such as Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences or Master of Business Administration, will not have the major field of study below the degree.
  • Minors, specializations, concentrations and sub-plans earned as part of students' degree(s) will not be included on the diploma, but are reflected on the official transcript.

Undergraduate Latin Honors

  • Undergraduate students who have earned academic honors with their baccalaureate degrees will have those honors reflected on their diploma.

Diploma Names

All diplomas ordered for graduating students will be printed with the diploma name listed on the student's myUTTyler account. 

  • If there is no diploma name listed, the students' primary name will be printed on the diploma.
  • The name change deadline for each graduation term is listed below
Diploma Name Change Deadline

  • Any changes made after the above deadlines to the diploma or primary names will not be reflected on the students' printed diploma and will be the students' responsibility for any charges to have their diploma reprinted with the requested changed name.


Effective Summer 2018, the size of UT Tyler diplomas varies based on the level of degree each student has earned.

  • Baccalaureate degrees measure 8 1/2"  x 11"
  • Master's and Doctoral degrees measure 11" x 14"


  • Diplomas will be sent the the diploma mailing address provided on the Parchment replacement diploma request.

After one full academic term has lapsed, all applicable fees will apply. Diplomas that are lost in the mail follow the same time lines.
