Replacement Diplomas

Alumni may request a replacement diploma if the original diploma has been lost or destroyed. Alumni are asked to complete the Diploma Replacement Form.

Replacement diplomas follow the format of the current Belhaven University diploma. All signatures for university officials appearing on original diplomas from 2013 to present will be used on the replacement diplomas. Prior to 2013, signatures of such officials may not be available. In such cases, signatures of current officials will be used. Replacement diplomas list the student’s name as it appears on the student’s transcript.

Orders for diploma replacements and reprints are place at the beginning of each month. Delivery of your order can be expected no later than the end of the month following the month you placed the order. A tracking number will be provided once your document is shipped.

Diploma Certification

Belhaven does not maintain copies of diplomas. Alumni needing a certified copy of a diploma should order a replacement diploma and specify the certification requirements on the diploma replacement form.
