For those graduates who have lost or damaged diplomas, the Office of the University Registrar offers a Diploma Replacement service.
Please review this page for more information, including replacement costs, and terms of delivery.
The cost of a replacement diploma is $40.00 (including shipping)
University Policy forbids the issuance of multiple copies of a diploma. Each diploma is considered a one-of-a-kind legal document.
Queen's understands that graduates may be asked to provide a copy of their diploma for various purposes (including visa and work permit requirements).
For these situations, graduates may request one of the following:
- A 'Degree Verification Letter', issued by the Office of the University Registrar, which outlines details of a degree obtained by a graduate; or,
- A 'Certified Copy of a Diploma'*, which consists of a photocopy of the existing diploma, certified to be true, stamped and countersigned by the Registrar's Office
* To obtain a Certified Copy, the original diploma MUST be sent to the Office of the University Registrar for processing. Staff will not certify photocopies created and sent by graduates.
