Operating Policy and Procedure
OP 77.01: Diploma Reorder
DATE: January 3, 2019
PURPOSE: The purpose of this Operating Policy/Procedure (OP) is to ensure understanding and standardized procedures for reordering official diplomas.
REVIEW: This OP will be reviewed in August of even-numbered years by the Registrar with substantive revisions presented to the Associate Vice Provost of Student Affairs.
The issuing of a diploma is the symbolic action of conferring a degree to an individual by the governing board of an institution. The diploma carries the official seal of the university as well as the signature of the current university President and Chairman of the Board of Regents and is supplemental to the academic transcript. The academic transcript identifies all work attempted and degrees awarded and is the official document certifying the completion of a university degree.
Students may order unlimited copies of the diploma document but must agree to accept the document in the diploma format (including signatures of the President, dean, etc.) available at the time of order. Orders may be submitted on the Office of the Registrar website and will be subject to appropriate fee(s). Diplomas will only be issued in the official name on record. All diploma orders will contain a statement of "reissued" with the date of the order. Student must clear any financial or transcript holds on record before the order will be processed.
