The University of Alabama issues only one diploma to each graduate. A graduate of the University may purchase a diploma to replace one that has been lost or destroyed. They may also purchase a duplicate for their home and/or office. The replacement/duplicate diploma will be printed with the original diploma name unless an official name change has been completed, and will bear the date the degree was awarded as well as a reissue date.
The signatures of University and University of Alabama System officials may not be the same as those on the original diploma. Diplomas are reissued in the current format and bear the signatures of current University officers, no exceptions .
Diploma Replacement/Duplicate Request
Graduates can order a replacement or duplicate diploma anytime on-line 24/7 using the Credentials Solutions system. Credentials Solutions is a vendor that provides this service through an agreement with the University of Alabama. The service is secure and encrypted, and payment must be made by credit card.
The cost is $40 for each hard copy diploma and $25 for a PDF diploma.
Hard copy replacement diplomas are mailed via the United States Postal Service, usually within two weeks of the completion of the order.
For PDF diplomas, please allow 72 business hours for processing of your order.
Important Notice: All records prior to 1983 will require 3-5 days of additional processing time as they may need to be retrieved through the archives.
