Duplicate and Replacement Diplomas

Sometimes fate has other plans for your diploma. Whether yours needs updating after a wedding or was gnawed upon by a neighbor’s dog, we can help you get another.

Missing Diplomas

Diplomas are typically mailed within three months after you graduate. Please allow time for your diploma to arrive after your graduation. You can verify your diploma address by viewing your submitted graduation application in Self Service Carolina. If you never received your diploma or it was damaged in transit, please contact us for assistance.

Replacement Diplomas

Replacement diplomas are duplicates of the original diploma issued by the university. The signatures on the replacement diploma will reflect current university officers. Replacements can take up to 90 days to process, print and ship. The cost is $25 to order a duplicate  and includes shipping.

Name Changes

The name printed on a replacement or duplicate diploma defaults to the name appearing on the student’s university record. To change the name imprinted on your diploma, you must submit a name change request and provide supporting legal documentation — marriage certificate or passport — via fax, email, or in-person delivery to the registrar’s office (1244 Blossom Street in Columbia).
