Diplomas

Diplomas will be handled by the Dean of Faculty Office. To get a diploma you must not have any holds on your account (e.g., overdue library materials, unpaid balance on your student account). You should check your student account on TheHub to confirm if you have a balance due and, if possible, be sure to settle your student account by Friday, May 15 at noon.

If you have a question about a library hold, please contact Suzanne Karanakis (413.559.5762, smkLO@hampshire.edu). Questions about holds from the business office should be directed to the student accounts office. Please note that diploma holds *cannot* be cleared on the date of commencement.

Division III Title Changes

Students can complete this form anytime until their Division IIIs are evaluated by their chairs.
