Paper Diplomas

Johns Hopkins University diplomas are original, engraved, legal documents and cannot be copied, reduced in size, or reproduced by the Office of the Registrar.

When you apply to graduate in SIS make certain all information is correct. Your diploma is a legal document, therefore, the printed name must match what is listed in your student record.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I order a replacement/duplicate diploma?

Replacement or duplicate diplomas may be ordered for $55 (check, money order, or credit card only- no cash) and take approximately 3-4 weeks for processing and delivery. Please complete a PDF Document: Duplicate Diploma Order Form and return to the Office of the Registrar with a copy of photo ID.

When will I receive my diploma?

Diplomas are mailed to the address provided on the application, approximately one (1) month after the conferral date. Delivery dates vary based on domestic or international couriers. The diploma will be mailed directly from our vendor, we will not be able to provide tracking information. However, if you do not receive your diploma after two (2) months from the conferral date, please contact us through SEAM.

Will a hold on my student account prevent me from receiving my diploma?

If you have a financial hold, student loan hold or academic hold on your student record, you will not receive a diploma or transcript until the obligation has been fulfilled. This does not prevent your actual graduation or conferral of degree.

How do I change the name printed on my diploma?

If a correction needs to be made to the first or last name, contact the Office of the Registrar before you apply for graduation. You will need to provide legal documentation to correct or change your name on your student record (middle names are the only exception).

What degree information will appear on my diploma?

Degree program and major(s) are printed on the diploma. Primary major will be listed first, and additional majors will follow. Minors, concentrations, options, and honors are not printed on diplomas, but can be found on your transcript.

What size are Johns Hopkins University diplomas?

The dimensions of all Johns Hopkins diplomas are 17″ x 14″.
