Duplicate Diplomas

Westminster College will replace your diploma in cases where the original has been lost, damaged or destroyed or when needed for employment or other purposes.

It is not possible to reproduce an exact replica of your original diploma at the time of your graduation. Your new diploma will be issued in the current format with the signatures of current college officials. The words “Duplicate Diploma” and the reason for replacement are printed in the bottom left corner of the diploma.

To order a duplicate diploma, fill out the Duplicate Diploma Request form. The form is also available in Word. The fee for duplicate diplomas is $30 and can be paid with cash, check or credit card. Please plan ahead and allow at least one week for processing. If you plan to pick up your diploma in person, you will need to provide picture identification for the diploma to be released.

In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, only the individual who earned the diploma can request a duplicate diploma. If you are requesting a diploma in a name other than the one originally issued, you must also provide legal documentation of your name change, such as a marriage license, divorce decree, or driver’s license.
