Replacement Diploma

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:

  1. Complete the replacement diploma request.
  2. Wait for an email or phone call from the Graduation Clerk.
  3. Follow the instructions provided in the email or phone call to make payment.
  4. 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
