Replacement Diplomas

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. If your graduation date is from 2020 or later, please visit your Gibson Portal to order a PDF duplicate. PDF duplicates are NOT able to be printed. Further instructions on purchasing and downloading electronic diplomas can be found on the Student Resources page.

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. Diploma processing & production takes up to 14 business days before shipping. During high-volume periods (such as Spring Commencement) processing may take longer.

Replacement requests due to a name change should be preceded by an official name change request along with required supporting legal documentation. Contact us for more information..

***The Louisiana Secretary of State charges an additional $25 fee per document for apostille.


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. A copy of your transcript can be added to Notarized or Apostille diploma orders for an additional $10.

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.
