Processing Time for Duplicate Diplomas
The normal processing time for duplicate diplomas is six to eight weeks. Note that diplomas must be ordered and may not be produced instantly. During peak activity times at the college (start of term, end of term, registration, etc.) it will take longer than normal to process a duplicate diploma request. Note that diplomas for graduates prior to 2010 may require extra processing time.
Picking up a Duplicate Diploma
Duplicate diplomas may be picked up during normal office hours provided you indicate this on your request. If someone else is coming to pickup the duplicate diploma for you, you must state this on the request and specify the person’s name. A Photo ID is required when you or someone else picks up a duplicate diploma. No exceptions will be allowed.
Mailing of Duplicate Diplomas
All duplicate diplomas are sent first class mail via the United States Postal Service. Express mail and private carriers (FedEx, UPS, etc.) may be utilized on a case-by-case basis; however, additional shipping fees must be paid by the alumnus. Please contact the Office of the Registrar before submitting your request if you wish to utilize these mailing options.
In order to ensure timely, secure delivery, duplicate diplomas are only sent via private carrier (FedEx, UPS, etc.) to international addresses. International shipping costs must be paid by the alumnus. Please contact the Office of the Registrar before submitting your request if your diploma will need to be shipped to an international address.
