Beginning in December 2021, Arkansas Tech has partnered with Parchment to offer a free digital diploma right after graduation. Your digital diploma compliments your paper diploma, which will be mailed to you 10-15 business days after your digital diploma is claimed, but is faster to access and can be shared on social media. Check your school email for a notification when your digital diploma is issued.

During the commencement ceremony, students will be handed an empty diploma cover.

NOTE: Students who have two majors will receive two diplomas.

Introducing the digital diploma

Graduates will receive an email and text notification with instructions for electronically claiming their diploma.

Follow these simple steps:

  • Check your school email and text messages for the award notification.
  • Follow the link to set up your Parchment digital credentials account.
  • Share your digital diploma on Facebook and LinkedIn or download a secure .pdf version.

Your digital diploma will always be accessible through your Parchment account. You can login and download or share it again and again -- at no cost to you.
