Diddy isn't the only star who received a degree today.

Chelsea Clinton and Tiger Wood's ex-wife Elin Nordegren also received degrees Saturday, with former President Bill Clinton's daughter earning her doctorate from Oxford University, while Nordegren earned her bachelor's degree in psychology from Rollins College.

The 34-year-old mom-to-be showed her appreciation to Twitter followers for their kind words about her accomplishment, tweeting Saturday, "Thank you for the good graduation wishes!" Meanwhile, her father, gushed over Chelsea's doctorate degree, tweeting, "Couldn't be prouder of @ChelseaClinton today. Congrats on your doctorate." The politico also posted a shot of himself with his daughter, wife Hillary, and Chelsea's husband, Marc Mezvinsky.

Nordegren, 34, first started taking college courses at Rollins in 2005 when she was married to Woods, often taking one class at a time as she "chipped away" at her degree, according to People.

After the birth of each of her children—Sam, 6, and Charlie, 5, she took a semester off, and again in 2010 following Woods' cheating scandal. But, she finally finished her degree on top, earning the Hamilton Holt Outstanding Senior Award—the top honor for her class.

"Education has been the only consistent part of my life the last nine years," she reportedly said after receiving the award. "And it has offered me comfort. Education is one thing that no one can take away from you."
