Replacement Diploma

The cost for a replacement diploma is $30.00 (please mail a check or money order payable to LSU to the Office of the University Registrar). Please allow 1 – 3 weeks for delivery after your payment is received. 

To request a replacement diploma, please provide the following information:

  • The name under which you were registered at LSU
  • The name you want printed on your diploma
  • Your date of birth
  • The degree you received (e.g., Bachelor of Science)
  • The college that granted the degree (e.g., College of Science)
  • Month and year you graduated
  • Your current mailing address or an address to which you would like the diploma mailed 

If you are ordering a diploma on another person’s behalf, then you will need to provide a copy of a photo ID card of the holder of the diploma. A signed statement releasing the diploma into your possession can also be accepted.

If you need a diploma apostilled, then an additional $20.00 fee will apply. You will need to also provide the country for which the document needs to be apostilled.

PLEASE NOTE: LSU uses USPS as our preferred carrier, and we ship using first class mail (no tracking number). Once a document is mailed out, the Office of the University Registrar cannot indemnify any document. Any diploma that is lost or stolen will result in an additional reprint fee.

These requests should be emailed directly to or mailed to the following address:
