Requesting a Diploma

Registrar Department

You may request a replacement diploma for yourself or order a gift certificate for a replacement diploma to present to another individual.  

There is a fee of $15.00 plus a $5.00 processing fee for replacement diplomas ($20.00 total).  A portion of the cost for a replacement diploma goes directly to the Alumni Association Scholarship Fund.

Under the name of the degree, the replacement diploma will contain the following statement, "Degree granted by Missouri Southern State University (date). Replacement Diploma issued (date)."

If the replacement diploma is for someone else, a gift certificate will be mailed to you along with a form the individual can complete and return authorizing MSSU to re-issue the diploma in their name. According to Federal privacy regulations,we cannot issue a diploma without the written authorization of the person to whom the degree was granted.

Complete and mail or fax form with $20.00 payment to:

Please allow four (4) to six (6) weeks for delivery of the replacement diploma.
