Post - Graduation

1. How will I be able to receive my diploma? 

Once grades are submitted and graduation verified, diplomas will be mailed out within six to ten weeks after commencement.

Make certain your mailing address is correctly listed in Blue and Gold Connection.  While the United States Postal Service (USPS) is accurate and dependable most of the time, occasionally diplomas are damaged.  We are unable to insure  USPS deliveries. 

If your diploma arrives damaged, it can be reprinted for a fee of $25.00.  Diploma folders will only be given to candidates participating in a commencement ceremony and are not available for purchase.

2. Tuition Rebates for undergraduate students.

The state of Texas is providing financial incentives for students who complete their undergraduate degrees by attempting no more than three (3) hours in excess of the minimum number of semester credit hours required for the degree.  Eligibility requirements and application for the rebate is located here

The rebate for eligible students is a maximum of $1,000.  To apply for the rebate, please complete the application and submit to your academic dean prior to graduation.
