il n'a pas eu son diplôme/he didn’t receive his degree

il n'a pas eu son diplôme/he didn’t receive his degree

As a test question immediately after the lesson it is easy. But most North American and indeed many British Commonwealth countries would consider 'receiving the degree' what happens at the official ceremony. Obtain/earn would be less ambiguous outside the time frame of lesson/test. Should it be changed  form receiver to 'obtain or earn'?
