Diplomas & Transcripts


All Commencement Exercise participants are degree candidatesnot certified graduates.  Your diploma will be mailed to you from the Columbia Registrar’s Office as soon as your completion of degree requirements has been validated.

Diplomas will be mailed to the address indicated on your Graduation Application. Spring graduates may expect to receive their diplomas in August. Your diploma will indicate the degree you are receiving and your transcript will list your degree along with all majors and minors.

By University policy, diplomas and transcripts will be held if all financial obligations to the University of South Carolina have not been properly satisfied.  If you are unsure whether you have an unsatisfied debt, call the Bursar's Office at  (843) 208-8008.

Transcript Requests

To order an official transcript, log on to Self-Service Carolina, complete a Transcript Request, and pay the non-refundable processing fee. All USC-system transcripts are issued by the Columbia campus; contact the USC Columbia Office of the Registrar at (803) 777-5555 for more information.  You may also print out an unofficial copy of your transcript via Self Service Carolina; this will display your awarded degree once it has been posted.
