Replacement or Duplicate Diplomas

A graduate of Pima Community College may purchase a duplicate diploma (to replace one that has been lost or destroyed). The replacement/duplicate will list the date the degree was originally awarded. 

The signatures of College officials may not be the same as those on the original diploma since the signatures of former officials are not maintained on file.  Therefore, replacement/duplicate diplomas will be reissued in the current format and will bear the signatures of current College officials.  There are no exceptions.

The new diploma will be mailed within 5 weeks of receipt of the request, with payment, unless an archival search is required to authenticate information or the request for the replacement cannot be fulfilled due to the dates on which the degree/major were approved.

Name Changes on the Diploma

Educational records are maintained, per College policy, under the student's full, legal name. For international students, the name maintained on educational records will be the name that appears on their passport and U.S. immigration documentation.

Name changes resulting from legal changes in name can be requested on a replacement diploma. Evidence of the legal change will be required. You will need to submit a Change of Student Data form along with the appropriate documentation to establish legal name change.  

Replacement and Duplicate Diploma Request

To request a replacement or duplicate diploma a student must fill out the Request for Replacement or Duplicate Diploma form.  The cost is $10 for each diploma.

Please provide all of the required information on the form and ensure that a day-time phone number and email address are included in case we need to get in touch with you.  Your replacement/duplicate diplomas will be mailed via the United States Postal Service, usually within five weeks of receipt of the request.

Payment must be made at a Campus Cashier's Office.  If you are out-of-state, please contact the Admissions Office at (520) 206-4640 or about payment methods.
