FT BB Offer Signed, Rescind for Delayed Graduation?

I completed a summer internship at a BB and received/signed an offer for FT.

After speaking with my college, I'm missing one distribution requirement course that will have to be completed during the summer (3-week course that ends before FT start date). I am still allowed to walk for graduation, but my diploma will be set for August. The school said it will write a letter indicating that I have all the necessary courses to graduate, but that my official diploma will be granted at the end of summer.

Will this affect my FT offer? Will they rescind?

Based on those two threads and the people that I know that have gone through the same thing, it shouldn't be a problem, although I would make sure it isn't a problem by contacting HR and letting them know.

Thanks for the response, I guess my situation is a bit different since
1) there is a strict start date even though I will complete all my courses before then, but I just won't receive the diploma in time
2) the offer letter indicates that the offer is contingent on graduation but doesn't specify a deadline for graduating
My fear is if the firm, Bulge Bracket bank, has strict policies on hiring graduates, but I do agree that reaching out to HR is a good next step.
