May 2023 Post-Commencement Information
You’ll always be a part of the MCPHS alumni family, no matter where you are in life. Strengthen your connection to our Community and discover how our alumni and friends support one another. Network with leaders in your field. Connect with your classmates at alumni receptions. And volunteer for causes that support the next generation of Cardinals.

University Advancement provides services that keep alumni informed about developments at MCPHS, connected with news about fellow alumni and friends, up-to-date with high quality professional continuing education programs, and inspired to support students, families, and faculty with many types of generous charitable gifts.
May 2023 graduates who did not attend the ceremony will receive their diploma via mail at the home/permanent address on file in Self-Service. Diplomas were mailed on May 11, 2023 at the conclusion of Commencement. Graduates still have access to Self-Service and can view the home/permanent address. Diploma shipping should take approximately 1-2 weeks for domestic addresses and 6-8 weeks for international addresses.
Graduates who did not update their home/permanent address can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Students who are expected to graduate in September 2023 will receive their degree via mail once it is conferred by the Registrar. It is imperative candidates ensure that their home/permanent address is correct in Self-Service before September 1, 2023. Address changes after September 1, 2023 may result in delays in shipment or returned shipment.
A stage photo was taken of each graduate who crossed the Commencement stage at the May 2023 ceremony. This 8x10 photo is complimentary, and our vendor, GradImages, emailed a photo proof link to your student email account to process ordering. Our vendor informed us that some graduates paid a fee for the 8x10 photo. This is incorrect, as an 8x10 photo is complimentary. We apologize for this mishap and any inconvenience it has caused. We have taken the necessary action to resolve this matter in partnership with our vendor and have outlined details below regarding the proof link and reimbursement.
If you ordered a photo and were charged for an 8x10, please contact GradImages to process a reimbursement by telephone at 1.800.261.2576 or by email at email@example.com. Please be sure to have your full name, the university name, and the ceremony you attended (morning/afternoon) readily available to expedite your call or email with the vendor.
If you did not receive the link or have not ordered your complimentary 8x10 photo, GradImages sent a follow-up notification to all graduates MCPHS email accounts with a link to the photo to complete ordering for your complimentary 8x10 photo.
If you do not receive the proof link from GradImages, please call or email them directly for further assistance.
