Parchment, Inc. is the official provider of official diplomas for Southern.

Expected Delivery Times

Effective October 2020, students are no longer required to apply to receive their diploma or certificate.  The Registrar's Office automatically processes diplomas and certificates once a student has successfully completed all program requirements.  

Once the degree has been awarded, students are notified in their Southern email within 1-2 weeks with instructions on how to access their official e-diploma to share with family, friends, and employers.  A paper diploma/certificate will be issued to the mailing address on file within 4-6 weeks.  There is no fee charged for the original diploma/certificate.

Reprints and Replacements

Students may order a duplicate or replacement diploma for a non-refundable $25 fee charged at the time of order.
