If you have applied for graduation, the Office of the University Registrar will automatically place an order for your original (first) diploma. Original diplomas may be picked up or it will be mailed to you at no charge providing it is going to a U.S. address.
If you wish to have your original diploma sent to an address outside of the U.S., you may update the mailing address by logging into your Enroll and Pay Student Center and selecting Diploma Delivery Request under My Academics. Please be aware of the international mail charges listed below.
Diplomas will not be provided for students with financial and other obligations to the University of Kansas
If you need to pickup your diploma, please wait for a response from the Office of the University Registrar before arriving at the KU Visitor Center or Edwards Campus reception desk. We will contact you when your diploma is ready for pick-up.
A Photo ID is required; written authorization is required to release diploma to another person; those picking up your diploma must have a photo ID. Diplomas may be picked up at the KU Visitor Center (Lawrence Campus) or Edward's students may request pickup at the Edwards Campus reception desk. Additional time may be required for pickup at Edwards Campus.
Replacement diplomas utilize the university's current design and contain the signatures of the current chancellor and chair of the Kansas Board of Regents. We are not able to replicate original diploma styles or signatures.
A KU Online ID is needed to order a replacement diploma. If you need to create a KU Online ID visit the IT accounts site and click on "Create a KU Online ID"; you will need to know your seven-digit KU ID number. Once you know your KU Online ID, sign in to the Enroll & Pay system, click on “student center,” then under Academics, click the “other academic” menu bar and select “diploma delivery request”.
Replacement diplomas are produced and mailed each Monday. You may check your order status on line at the KU Diploma Delivery Request to determine if your replacement diploma has been produced.
