Duplicate Diplomas

Duplicate diplomas are ordered twice a year (January and July). Once ordered, it takes six to eight weeks to be processed. Please complete the Duplicate Diploma Form, return it along with payment to the address listed below. 

Please note: If you have a financial obligation to the University, your duplicate diploma request cannot be honored. In instances where a diploma is not picked up for any reason or is returned as undeliverable, Fordham University will retain the student's diploma for a period of 6 full academic years from the date of graduation. Thereafter, a duplicate diploma must be ordered and the associated fee paid.


Effective July 1, 2020, the fee for a duplicate diploma is $50 (check or money order payable to Fordham University, credit cards not accepted).

Mailing Diploma

The duplicate diploma fee includes mailing of the diploma, if requested. Diplomas are sent through the United States Postal Service (USPS). It is recommended that diplomas are NOT be mailed to P.O. boxes or international addresses.  Please note, if you choose to have your diploma mailed internationally and it arrives damaged or not received, you will be obligated to pay the duplicate diploma order fee if requesting another diploma.

Picking Up Diploma

Government-issued ID or Fordham ID must be shown in order to receive your diploma.  In order to release a diploma to someone other than the recipient, the graduate must send an authorization by mail or email, with the name of the person who will pick up the diploma.  If an authorization email is preferred, it must be sent from a secure Fordham Email Address to
