Replacement or Duplicate Diplomas
Notre Dame has provided a sheepskin or paper diploma for undergraduate and graduate students since 1967. Prior to 1967, there was a mixture of eras when the institution utilized only sheepskin, only paper, or occasionally both materials in the same year. Notre Dame's Law School diploma is currently and has always been paper. In August 2011, the only vendor manufacturing sheepskin diplomas ceased production; therefore, beginning in January, 2012, the University began printing on paper in-house.
The cost of replacement or duplicate diplomas is as follows:
- -January 2012 graduates to present: Printed on paper only: $65.00*
- -August 2011 graduates and prior: Printed on paper $65.00* or printed on sheepskin $115.00* (for available years and degrees).
*There is an additional express mail postage fee for international mailing.
Once your degree information has been verified, you will be provided a link to payment options. Please allow 4-6 weeks for processing after the request is received.
A request for a duplicate or replacement diploma should include:
- Paper or sheepskin (view dates above)
- Written signature of the person receiving the diploma
- Printed name as it is to appear on the diploma, if different from the original
- Year of graduation & type of degree
- Majors and minors
- Last 3 digits of your Social Security number
- Address to which the diploma should be mailed
- Contact information: phone number and email address
If the request is for a diploma dated prior to 1968, we duplicate as close as possible to the original document except that the diploma may be printed on smaller stock.
We do not have copies of diplomas on file. All replacements and duplicates are official and original.
