In some cases, students prefer to have their full middle or maiden names included on their diploma. It is your responsibility to verify that the name listed is correct, or to provide any changes required, including hyphens, spaces, lower/upper case letters, accents, etc. The IUPUI Office of the Registrar will process duplicate diplomas requests for degrees awarded at the IUPUI campus.

Ordering Process

Duplicate orders are normally placed with the vendor by the first of each month, with an expected delivery date of six to eight weeks. Professional diplomas (IU Law, Medicine, & DDS) can have an expected delivery date of three to four months. Please note, however, that original orders for currently graduating students take precedence over orders for duplicate diplomas. When the vendor is printing the diplomas for December, May, June, and August graduates, production of duplicate diplomas may be delayed up to two additional months. All duplicate diplomas show the date the degree was originally conferred and bear the signatures of the original University officials.

Requests can be made by mail or FAX using the Duplicate Diploma Request Form. All requests must include your signature. If you wish to pay by credit card (Visa/MasterCard/Discover), be sure to include your card number and expiration date. Payment must accompany all requests.

The fees currently in effect for this service on the IUPUI campus (including domestic postage):

  • IU Undergraduate & Graduate $ 35.00
  • IU Law, Medicine, DDS $ 50.00

Please add an additional $10.00 if overseas mailing is required.
