Diploma and Honors Information

Due to changes in the final grading period, diplomas will no longer be distributed after the commencement ceremony. Diplomas will instead be mailed to the address you provided when you completed your graduation application. 

If you have not yet completed your graduation application, you can do so through Leopardweb (click on the Student Tab, then the link for Student Records, and then the link for Submit Diploma Name). You can review a completed application by clicking on View Diploma Name.

Also, note that the honors in the commencement program are based upon completed courses as of Spring 2017 semester. The final determination of honors will not occur until final grades for all courses are submitted. This means that the honors in the program may not be the honors you receive on your diploma. If you are graduating with honors, you will pick up an honors cord at Cap & Gown Distribution.

If you have any questions about your diploma or honors, please contact the Student Service Center at 617-989-4020 or ssc@wit.edu.

When do I get my diploma?

Your diploma will be mailed to the address you provide as part of the online Graduation Application; they will be mailed to you after the ceremony.
