Diploma/Program Certificate Replacement

(Printable application form)

The Office of the Registrar will replace a lost or damaged diploma and/or program certificate upon application and statement of loss or damage. If possible, the damaged diploma and/or program certificate should be returned to the University in order for a replacement to be issued. 

A replacement diploma follows the current format. It is printed with the original graduation date and with the name of the student at the time of graduation, but with the current President’s and University Secretary’s signatures. A replacement diploma bears a notation at the bottom stating that the diploma is a replacement of the original and lists the date of its preparation.

A replacement program certificate is printed with the original graduation date and with the name of the student at the time of graduation, but with the current President’s signature. 

Alumni must submit a notarized Application for Replacement Diploma and/or Replacement Program Certificate, accompanied by a check or money order in US dollars made payable to Princeton University as follows:

Replacement Diploma - $75
Replacement Program Certificate - $30

The diploma and program certificate are unique documents; the University does not issue copies or duplicates of diplomas or program certificates.
