    • If your Convocation occurred within the past month, documents may not yet be prepared for distribution. In that case, there will be no link to request courier service. The link will appear only when documents are ready for packaging and shipping.
    • If you have already received your document in person, or had someone collect it on your behalf, there will be no Document Courier Request.
