    Ron has to face the fact that he has to tell his father that he will not be graduating. 

    Ron tells his father that I didn't get my diploma!  Since when did you get a diploma in college?  A diploma is what you earn when you graduate from High School when you graduate from college you receive a degree.

    Someone correct me if I wrong.

    I think it's just a matter of semantics. Some people call it a college diploma.

    Degree is usually the term for college. Diploma is most often associated with high school. The post above is right though, some people say diploma instead of degree.
