To guard against fraud, all duplicate diplomas will indicate the following notation (with the date the order is issued): “Duplicate Issued XX-XX-XXXX.” This indication will appear in the lower right-hand corner of the diploma and is non-negotiable. This notation will not appear on replacement diplomas if the original diploma is sent back to the Office of the Registrar.
Orders for duplicate and/or replacement diplomas will take a minimum of 6 weeks to be processed by our vendor. Expedition is NOT available. Duplicate and/or replacement diplomas will not be released to any graduate with an account balance.
Diplomas are printed in Latin and cannot be printed in any other language. To request an official diploma translation, a student must complete the Certification Request Form:
All certifications require a signed written request by the student. Inclusion of your GOCard or your social security number, daytime phone number, and delivery instructions are essential for timely processing.
