Requests for Duplicate and Replacement Diplomas
A written request is required for a duplicate 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 or replacement diploma is $60.00, payable when the request is made. Checks should be made out to Georgetown University Law Center. To guard against fraud, a replacement diploma will be indicated with "Exemplum", meaning 'duplicate' in Latin; and a duplicate diploma will be indicated with the date the order is issued. These indications will appear in the lower right hand corner of the diploma.
Georgetown University Law Center diplomas are produced in Latin only. They cannot be produced in English or any other language.
Your diploma request and check should be mailed to:
Georgetown University Law Center
600 New Jersey Ave, NW
Office of the Registrar, Room 315
Washington, DC 20001
Orders for duplicate and replacement diplomas will take 6 weeks to be processed by our vendor.
Please note that a graduate can only obtain a diploma with the name as it appears in our records when he/she graduated.
Duplicate and replacement diplomas will not be released to any graduate with an account balance.
