PCOM has four graduation ceremonies each year:


Eligibility to Participate in Graduation Ceremony

To be eligible to participate in the graduation ceremony, students must complete degree requirements during that academic year. For those students that require thesis defense such as MS Biomedical Science Research and the PsyD programs, completion of your thesis is required by June 1 of that year. An email is sent to prospective degree candidates in each program several months prior to graduation requesting information. If you do not receive an email by April 5th of that year, then you should email the registrar’s office at to be added to the graduation list. 

Diploma Replacement Form

If you lose or damage your diploma, you may order a replacement. Please complete the diploma replacement form and have it notarized. Include a check for $50 made payable to PCOM when mailing your request

Only notarized requests will be processed. Requests cannot be processed without a signature (and therefore email and telephone requests cannot be honored). We are unable to print a replacement diploma for anyone other than the graduate.

Please send your request to:

4190 City Avenue, RH 203
Registrar's Office
Philadelphia, PA 19131

Upon receipt of your request and confirmation of your degree earned, a replacement diploma will be ordered. You may expect to receive your diploma within seven to nine weeks of the date that the request was received.
