Replacement Diplomas & Apostille Requests

Any graduate of Tulane University may purchase a diploma to replace one that has been lost, destroyed, or as a duplicate for their home or office. The reissued/duplicate diploma will bear the date the degree was awarded as well as the word “duplicate” in the top margin.

The signatures of Tulane University officials may not be the same as those on the original diploma. Diplomas are reissued in the current format and bear the signatures of the current University officers.

Replacement requests due to a name change should be preceded by an official name change request along with required supporting legal documentation. Contact the Registrar’s Office at 504-865-5231 or for more information.


When ordering a diploma requiring an Apostille, you may place your order below and the Registrar’s Office will contact you regarding additional information and payment required by the Louisiana Secretary of State. Your diploma will be sent to the Tulane Registrar’s Office for notarization, and then on to the Louisiana Secretary of State to receive the Apostille. The Louisiana Secretary of State will then forward the completed document on to your final shipping address. This process can take up to 4-6 weeks.

Those who do not require a replacement diploma and would like to have an Apostille placed on a certified copy of their diploma may contact the Registrar’s Office directly for instructions.
