Diploma Replacement | University Registrar | Kent State University

Diploma Replacement


Degrees are posted to students' permanent academic records approximately thirty days following the effective date of graduation.

All Spring 2018 degree recipients will be able to pick up their diploma at the Office of the University Registrar, Room 108 Schwartz Center, during the hours of 8AM to 6PM from Monday, June 18, 2018, to Wednesday, June 20, 2018.  Any remaining diplomas will be mailed on Thursday, June 21, 2018, to the PERMANENT or DIPLOMA address listed on the student’s FLASHLINE account.  Students may only pick up their own diploma with proper photo ID such as a Kent State University ID, a driver’s license or state ID, military ID or passport.

Please Note: The integrity of academic transcripts is fundamental to the validity of coursework and degrees certified by the University. Therefore, all student transcript entries (grades and other notations) are finalized when the pertinent degree is officially posted to the permanent academic record. Subsequent revision and alteration of any transcript entry, after the relevant degree is awarded, is permitted only for the correction of a proven error as certified by the appropriate academic dean and the registrar.


A replacement diploma may be ordered when the student's original diploma has been lost or damaged. Duplicate diplomas are not issued.

Payment is required prior to processing your request.
