Requests for Duplicate and Replacement Diplomas
A written request is required for a duplicate and/or replacement diploma. Replacement orders are for diplomas that have been lost, stolen, or destroyed. Duplicate orders are for alumni who wish to order additional copies of their diploma.
The request should be signed by the graduate and contain the following information:
GoCard number OR last 4 digits of your social security number
Date of graduation
Reason for request
A street address where someone will be present to sign for the diploma
A daytime telephone number (required for Federal Express) where the graduate can be reached for questions
An email address
The cost of a duplicate and/or replacement diploma is $60.00, payable when the request is made. Checks should be made out to Georgetown University Law Center, and mailed to:
Georgetown University Law Center
600 New Jersey Ave., NW
Office of the Registrar, Room 315
Washington, DC 20001
To guard against fraud, all duplicate and replacement 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, except for extenuating circumstances*.
*For more information about the extenuating circumstances, please contact Cynthia Eichele, Manage of Registration and Commencement, at 202-662-9673 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or the general Office of the Registrar at 202-662-9220 or email@example.com.
Georgetown University Law Center diplomas are produced in Latin only. They cannot be produced in English or any other language.
Orders for duplicate and/or replacement diplomas will take 4-6 weeks to be processed by our vendor. Expedition is not available.
Please note that a graduate can only obtain a diploma with the name as it appears in our records when he or she graduated.
Duplicate and/or replacement diplomas will not be released to any graduate with an account balance.
