Diplomas, Transcripts & Accounts

Diplomas & Transcripts

We ask all degree candidates to update and verify your diploma and graduation information (through the Student Link).

To Update Your Graduation Information:

  • In the Student Link, select Academics.
  • Choose Diploma and Graduation.
  • Review/update your diploma information (degree, major, school/college, how your name will appear).
    Even if you’re not attending a ceremony, please update your information so we can accurately create your diploma.
  • Select whether you’ll attend a convocation ceremony.
    If you’re receiving a dual degree or you had multiple majors, please select which diploma ceremony you plan to attend.
  • Verify or update your mailing address. The Registrar will begin mailing diplomas to those who select that option on June 17, 2019.
  • If you don’t update your mailing address or want to pick up your diploma, your diploma will be available at your School/College until May 31st.  On June 7th, diplomas will be available for pick up at the Registrar’s Office at 881 Comm. Ave. Mailing begins on June 17, 2019.

Current students can request official transcripts online from the Registrar’s Office.

For more information, contact the Registrar, 617-353-3612.

Student Accounts & Finances

Student Accounting Services and BU Financial Assistance are available to answer your account questions and assist you with meeting necessary deadlines for graduation.

Outstanding Balances
To avoid a delay in getting your diploma, make sure to pay any outstanding balances by May 3, 2019. If you’ve met all academic requirements but miss the May 3rd deadline, BU will make every effort to have your diploma awarded at Commencement after your payment is received. However, to guarantee your diploma’s availability for the Commencement Weekend ceremonies, you should meet the May 3rd deadline.

For additional information regarding payment issues, contact Student Accounting Services, 617-353-2264.

Loan Exit Counseling
May 3, 2019 is the last day to complete your Federal Perkins Loan and Federal Direct Stafford Loan exit counseling requirements. If you’re a student borrower, you’ll receive instructions in the spring.

For additional information regarding loan requirements, contact Financial Assistance, 617-353-2965.
