Digital Diplomas

Congratulations, graduate!

It’s time to celebrate your achievement. Lehman College has teamed with Parchment to offer an official digital version of your diploma. It’s fast, free, and sharable! Celebrate your accomplishment with those who supported you along the way like your family, friends, and colleagues. You can even share with potential employers to jump-start the next step in your journey or career.

New graduates will receive their diploma electronically. Once degrees have been processed, students will receive an email notification with instructions on how to claim their digital diploma.

Once you receive your digital diploma, it will always be accessible through your Parchment account. You can login and download or share it at no cost.

Your digital diploma will be sent to your preferred email address on your CUNYfirst account. For information on how to update your preferred email address, click here.

Along with your digital copy, Parchment will ship a paper copy to your home address on your CUNYfirst account within 6-8 weeks after your conferral date. For information on how to update your home address, click here.
