Are on their way! Please watch your student email for your link to Parchment to receive your digital copy. Printed diplomas will be mailed directly to the graduate. 

Starting with the Fall 2022 diplomas, Victor Valley College has partnered with Parchment to print and mail physical diplomas and high unit certificates to students. In addition to the printed diplomas, you will be able to obtain a digital diploma or certificate. * Low unit certificates will only receive a digital copy. You will receive an email from Parchment to create an account and retrieve your diploma and/or certificate. Diplomas and high unit certificates will be mailed to you within 12-16 weeks after the appropriate filing period. Only one diploma (per major) will be provided to you at no cost. If you graduated with more than one major, you will receive a separate diploma for each major. It will also state if you graduated with honors.


DIPLOMAS prior to Fall 2022

Diplomas can be picked up in the Admissions & Records office located in the Student Services (OneStop), building 23. Please be prepared to show a picture ID when you arrive as we cannot release your diploma without it.
