Diplomas are ordered three times each year: in February for Spring semester graduates, in August for Summer school graduates, and in January for Fall semester graduates. The name that appears on the diploma is taken from the Applications to Graduate for both graduate and undergraduate students. Once the diplomas are received from the vender they are carefully inspected. If, however, after receiving your diploma you find an error simply notify our office and a replacement will be ordered at no charge.
Diplomas are mailed to graduates who do not attend the Commencement ceremony in May, students who graduate during the summer or following the fall semester. Students may also pick up their diploma in person at the Registrar's Office, 102 Marts Hall. Students must meet all financial obligations before their diploma can be released.
Graduates of Bucknell may order a diploma to replace their original one. The fee for a replacement diploma is $35.00, which includes shipping cost for UPS mail. Payment must accompany your request. Make checks or money orders payable to Bucknell University.
Requests for replacement diplomas should be directed to the Registrar's Office. Be sure that your request contains your signature. Requests CANNOT be processed without a signature, therefore telephone requests cannot be honored.
