Graduating Candidates

The name on a student’s diploma will appear as the full legal name that Texas State University currently has on file. If the name on the student’s record is incorrect, the student must follow the personal information update procedure to change it. Students are still able to apply for graduation by October 6th, 2017 without making the name change first.

January 9th, 2018 is the deadline for Fall 2017 graduate students to change the legal name that will appear on their diploma. The deadline for students to change their name for the commencement program is November 13th, 2017.

For more information on how to change your legal name on file, please visit the personal information update webpage. For more information on diplomas, including verifying your diploma address, please visit the diploma and certificates webpage.
