Replacement/Duplicate Diploma Information

Only one diploma is provided per student, however we can provide one duplicate/replacement per awarded diploma for an additional $50.00 charge per diploma. All requests for duplicate/replacement diplomas are subject to approval from the Registrar or one of the Associate Registrars.  

The process for requesting a duplicate/replacement diploma is as follows: 

We will need a letter, in writing, requesting a reissued diploma and including the following required information.

  • Graduate’s name as it should appear on the diploma
  • Graduation date
  • Which degree the diploma is for, if more than one was received from UW?
  • Why the reissued diploma is needed?
  • What is the status of the original?
  • Whether the diploma requires notarization*
  • A contact phone number or email address
  • The address to which the diploma should be mailed
  • Graduate’s signature

*The original diploma was not notarized. Notarization is normally only needed in specific cases. Please be aware that requesting that the duplicate/replacement diploma be notarized will increase the processing time for the request.

The signed request must then be mailed, faxed, or scanned and e-mailed to the Office of the Registrar using the contact information below. The request is subject to approval by the Registrar. Expect 3-4 weeks for processing.

Expedited services are available for an additional fee. Please be sure to note if expedited service is required and why such service is needed in the request letter.
