A graduate of the University of Alabama in Huntsville may purchase a duplicate diploma (to replace one that has been lost or destroyed) or a replacement diploma (which provides details of degree and major in cases where this is now available). They may also purchase a duplicate for their home and/or office.
The replacement/duplicate will list the date the degree was originally awarded as well as the date on which it was reissued.
The signatures of University officials may not be the same as those on the original diploma since the signatures of former officials are not maintained on file. Therefore, replacement/duplicate diplomas will be reissued in the current format and will bear the signatures of current University officials. There are no exceptions possible to this.
The new diploma will be mailed within 3 weeks of receipt of the request, with payment, unless an archival search is required to authenticate information or the request for the replacement cannot be fulfilled due to dates on which the degree/major were approved.
Name Changes on the Diploma
Educational records are maintained, per University policy, under the student's full, legal name. In the case of international students the name maintained on educational records will be the same as the one that appears on their passport and U.S. immigration documentation.
Name changes resulting from legal changes in name can be requested on a replacement diploma. Evidence of the legal change will be required.
Replacement and Duplicate Diploma Request
To request a replacement or duplicate diploma a student must fill out the appropriate form. The cost is $40 for each diploma. Please fill all the required information on the form and ensure that a day time phone number and email address are included in case we need to get in touch with you.
