Replacement Diploma


Louisiana State University is now processing all diploma requests through a partnership with Parchment. New functionality allows all students, both current and former, to order diplomas 24/7 using Parchment. In addition, all students can now opt to receive hardcopy diplomas and/or a secure electronic diploma. This new online platform provides faster service and enhanced delivery options. 

This ordering process is only able to issue diplomas for degrees awarded by the following campuses: LSU A&M - Baton Rouge, LSU Online, LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, and the LSU Law Center.

To request a diploma, current and former students must submit their request through the Parchment system. Payment must be made by credit card. 

If a user experiences a barrier due to a disability, please contact the commencement coordinator at 225-578-1686, or in person at 112 Thomas Boyd Hall.

Your diploma will only show your degree title as was filed by your department with the Louisiana Board of Regents. 

Majors, Minors and Concentrations do not appear on your diploma. All majors, minors and concentrations are listed on your academic transcript.

Undergraduates who have graduated with Latin or College Honors will have this noted on their diploma beneath the degree title. Latin Honors and College Honors will also be posted to academic transcripts.

Senior colleges will confirm Latin Honors after final grades have been processed. 

Graduate students do not receive Latin Honors.

If there is an error on the diploma, return it to the Registrar’s Office, 112 Thomas Boyd Hall, for correction. If the error is the fault of the University, no fee is charged. If the error is the student’s fault, a replacement diploma fee applies.
