All degree requirements must be completed and degrees must be conferred before a diploma can be released.
Diplomas are available approximately 6 weeks after degrees are conferred. Graduates will be emailed additional information regarding diplomas.
Diplomas will be available, at the specified time, in the Registrar's Office (REID Hall-3rd Floor) during regular business hours.
You MUST bring a form of picture identification with you to be properly identified. NOTE: Diplomas will NOT be released to students with active "Holds" from Student Accounts, Financial Aid or other campus offices.
Diploma Pick Up by Third Parties:
A Manhattanville diploma is a valuable document. To have someone else pick up your diploma by proxy, we require a written release consent from the student ("proxy letter"). Please submit to the Registrar's Office a proxy letter prepared by you identifying the person by FULL NAME who will be receiving your diploma, your student ID number, your maiden name or name used while in attendance (if applicable), your graduation year and a copy of your current photo ID (Mville ID, current driver's license, passport, etc.). Sign the letter with your full penned signature. Proxy letters with signatures may be faxed or emailed as scanned attachments. Emails or faxes of proxy letters without penned signatures will NOT BE ACCEPTED!
Diploma Mailing To Domestic and Foreign Recipients:
To ensure that a mailed diploma reaches its proper owner, the College requires confirmation of address.
* Domestic Delivery (50 states & territories): Diplomas will be sent using the US Postal Service. Only postage costs for standard DOMESTIC delivery of a diploma are covered by the College.
* Express Domestic & Overseas Delivery: All costs for express mail service requests or courier services to international locations (regardless of carrier) will be the responsibility of the diploma recipient. Parties must make prior arrangements with a carrier, arrange payment and then provide the Registrar's Office with package pickup instructions. Diplomas are placed in a cardboard envelope for protection. Contact our office for further details.
Replacement diplomas are available for those that have been lost or destroyed at a charge of $35.00. Allow 6 to 8 weeks for processing. The $35.00 charge covers the diploma cost and DOMESTIC mailing only. International mailing costs are additional and must be arranged by the diploma requestor! Please submit the request form below to the Registrar's Office:
Diploma reorder payment is made to Manhattanville College. You will be contacted when the replacement diploma is ready.
**Unfortunately during this time of COVID-19, we are unable to furnish apostilles as we cannot print documents or have them notarized during this time of working remote. If there is anything else we can assist you with, please let us know. The Registrar's Office is able to furnish electronic transcripts and degree verification letters during this time.**
Obtaining an Apostille of the Hague:
Foreign institutions that receive diplomas and official transcripts issued by Manhattanville College may require certification using an "apostille". The apostille is an internationally recognized document certification process, developed so official documents may be reliably shared and certified across international boundaries. The apostille's legal and procedural foundations were established by the Hague Convention of 1961. In New York, the Apostille of the Hague process is managed by the New York Department of State. Students and alumni will work with the Manhattanville College Registrar's Office to obtain a notarized copy of their diploma and/or transcript. Then, they must make their own arrangements with the Westchester County Clerk and the New York Department of State to complete the apostille authentication process. Third party apostille processors may also be retained for a fee.
Apostilles CANNOT be processed on a walk-in basis! Please allow up to 10 business days before documents are ready for pickup or mailing back to you (domestic mail only). Click HERE for Apostille instructions.
