JD Graduates who did not attend the Diploma Ceremony should contact the Registrar's Office (Room 10, Garden Level) to pick-up their diplomas.  Graduates who attended the ceremony, but whose diploma had errors or was not released due to a Financial or Registar's "hold," should contact the Registrar at 212.636.6801 or   LLM Graduates should contact the Office of International and Non-J.D. Programs to receive their diplomas.
