A replacement diploma is requested when a graduate needs a copy of their diploma. A replacement for the original diploma and diploma cover will be issued to the graduate.
The cost of the replacement is $40.
Steps to request a replacement diploma:
- Complete the replacement diploma request.
- Wait for an email or phone call from the Graduation Clerk.
- Follow the instructions provided in the email or phone call to make payment.
- Receive the diploma (in person or through the mail) once payment is confirmed.
Replacements cannot be emailed or faxed.
The replacement diploma is typically mailed, or ready for pick-up at the Poplarville campus, 2 business days after payment has been made.
Be aware that employers often request proof of graduation. Some employers allow a diploma to be used as proof; however, many require an official transcript. An official transcript is often less expensive than a replacement diploma and can be requested at www.iwantmytranscript.com.
