Beyond Graduation


The Office of Career Services offers assistance to alumni who are job seeking. Whether you are updating your resume, preparing for interviews or searching for job opportunities, the career services staff are here for you. The Career Resource Center is located in 202 Horace Mann and is open 8:00 am - 4:30 pm on Monday through Friday. All our services are available to alumni FREE of charge, with the exception of a $50 fee if you choose to utilize the PSU Career Services Online database.


Please retain the diploma cover you are presented at commencement.  Your diploma will be mailed to you without a cover in June after verification that you have met all requirements for your degree.    If you did not walk at commencement, a cover will be mailed along with your diploma once the same verification process has transpired.


The Senior Gift Council has for sale a customized mat designed for framing diplomas, using the Pittsburg State University gorilla logo.  It is available unframed or framed.  Proceeds from the sales benefit the Senior Gift Program.  Make the gorilla diploma mat a part of your graduation celebration and proudly display your diploma.  Contact the Office of Development at 620-235-4768 or toll free at 888-448-2778 to place your order.
