If you applied for a degree but did not finish your degree requirements within a 12-month period, you will need to pay a diploma re-order fee of $25 and submit a Request for a Diploma form.


Commencement exercises are held once a year in May, but degrees can be conferred at other times. Students who have completed all degree requirements are encouraged to participate in Commencement. In addition, students who have obtained a 2.0 GPA and who have less than 12 hours of deficiencies may participate in Commencement, provided they have an approved plan to complete all requirements.

When will I get my diploma?

Degrees will be conferred and diplomas will be issued to students upon completion of their degree requirements and after approval by the Tabor faculty and Board of Directors in February, May or October. Students who have all degree requirements completed prior to Commencement will receive their diplomas right after the Commencement exercises. Students who complete their degree requirements in the summer term will receive their diplomas after August 31. Students who complete their degree requirements in the fall term will receive their diplomas after December 31.
