Stanford 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 through our Diploma Request Portal

Cost for replacement diplomas

There is a fee of $100 for a replacement paper diploma and $50 for an electronic version in PDF format. You can pay this fee online through the ordering portal. 

Once your order is submitted, it takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks to receive your paper replacement diploma. Expedited shipping is an option for an additional fee.  

Replacement diploma format

Each replacement diploma follows the current diploma format but includes a notation stating that the diploma is a replacement of the original and the date of its preparation. 

All replacement diplomas bear the signatures of the current University Chair of the Board of Trustees, President, and School Dean.
