Currently a CeDiploma is only available for 2015 graduates and forward. If you would like a electronic diploma prior to this year you will need to request a replacement, https://stanford.box.com/v/diploma-replacement.
The CeDiploma will be available approximately 4-6 weeks after your degree has been posted to your record. You will receive an email notification when a CeDiploma is available to be downladed.

The CeDiploma is best viewed in Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Reader. Some features may not be available when viewed in a web browser’s default viewer. Change the default viewer in your web browser so that it uses Adobe Reader or Acrobat.
Note for Mac users: When viewing an official electronic credential from Stanford University, the software uses Adobe’s secure certified PDF technology and therefore may only be viewed using the free Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat 9.0 or higher. The default Mac preview application will not display the document correctly.
Requests from current or former students with unmet obligations to the University (e.g., holds) cannot be honored. To resolve such holds, please file a support request.
