Diplomas are mailed several months after graduation. Students who need official verification of graduation before the diploma is ready may order transcripts through GOLD. The degree earned must be indicated on the transcript request. If all degree requirements have been completed, and if immediate proof that requirements have been met is needed, undergraduate students may request a letter of verification from the Office of the Registrar. Graduate degree candidates who need proof of degree completion prior to receipt of their final transcript should request a letter of degree verification from the Graduate Division.

If you have a financial block on your BARC account at the end of the quarter for which you have declared candidacy to graduate, your diploma and transcript will be held until your BARC account is cleared. In the event that your diploma is held, you must contact the BARC Office by phone at (805) 893-3756, or by email to barc.info@barc.ucsb.edu regarding your BARC account. To receive your diploma, you must also contact the Office of the Registrar by calling (805) 893-2633 or by email to reggraduationmatters@sa.ucsb.edu once your BARC account is clear. An additional diploma mailing will be charged.
