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.

Replacement Diplomas 

Graduates of Bucknell may order a diploma to replace their original one. The diplomas are sent out from our third-party vender Paradigm. Payment must accompany your request. Make checks or money orders payable to Bucknell University. We cannot accept credit or debit cards at this time.

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.

Shipping within the continental U.S. is as follows:

  • Silver standard is the base fee for a replacement diploma and is $35.00, which includes shipping cost for USPS mail and can take up to two weeks to process and ship from our vendor.  
  • Gold Rush is an additional $22.00 plus the base $35.00 fee and will be processed within five business days.  Once processed, it will ship from Paradigm via UPS Ground.
  • Platinum Emergency is an additional $40.00 plus the base $35.00 fee and will be processed overnight.  Once processed, it will ship from Paradigm via Next Day Air.

Please indicate on the form which of the above methods (Silver Standard, Gold Rush, or Platinum Emergency) you would prefer and submit payment with the form.

  • Shipping charges may vary depending on the destination.
