Replacement Diplomas


Stanford University will not issue duplicate diplomas under any circumstances. This measure is taken to protect Alumni from identity theft. If your diploma was permanently lost or destroyed, a replacement diploma may be ordered from the Office of the University Registrar. You can order online in our  Diploma Request Portal. The fee for a replacement paper diploma is $100 and $50 for an electronic version in PDF format. See credential request portal for expedited shipping options. You can pay this fee online through the ordering portal. From the time the order is submitted to issuance of the replacement diploma takes 4-6 weeks.

Each replacement diploma follows the current diploma format and includes a notation stating that the diploma is a replacement of the original and listing date of its preparation. All replacement diplomas bear the signatures of the current University Chair of the Board of Trustees, President, and School Dean.
