Will a degree on hold sabotage a full-time offer with PwC?

 
From the mailbag:
I am supposed to start my training program this September 2014 in Philadelphia with PwC. Something happen at school and now the school is placing a hold on my diploma until December 2014 (which is when my "graduation" will be). By May 2014 (my original graduation date) I will have completed all work for graduation, however the hold will be in effect until December 2014. Do you think that PwC will hold my place in a training program for 2015, or will allow me to go directly into the 2014 training program without my diploma, contingent on that I do receive it in December 2014?
