Graduation Eligibility and Diplomas

PCOM holds commencement ceremonies at each campus location.

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 5 of that year, then you should email the Registrar Office at to be added to the graduation list. 

Diploma Replacement Form

If you lose or damage your diploma, you may order a replacement.

  1. Please complete our online Diploma Reprint Request Form.
  2. Include a check for $25 made payable to PCOM when mailing your request.

Requests cannot be processed without a signature (and therefore email and telephone requests cannot be honored). Students are required to provide two copies of legal documentation to receive a diploma. We are unable to print a replacement diploma for anyone other than the graduate.

Please send your request to:

Registrar Office
4190 City Avenue
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.
