  • Degree and major
  • Address where you want the diploma to be sent
  • A daytime telephone number

There is a fee of $50.00 for a duplicate diploma, payable by check or credit card.  Diplomas are ordered from a third party vendor and are typically shipped to the Registrar’s Office in approximately four weeks*.  Once received by the Registrar’s Office, diplomas will be sent via regular US mail to the address provided by the requestor.  Diplomas can be rushed for an additional fee of $40.00 for domestic and $45.00 for international shipping.  Students will receive a rushed diploma in approximately one week*.

Please be aware that “Duplicate Diploma” will be noted along the bottom edge of the replacement diploma.  This notation is typically hidden when the diploma is placed in a standard frame.

*Diploma processing may take longer around holidays and when shipped internationally, so please plan accordingly.
