A financial bar on a student's record will prevent processing a diploma order for that student. PLEASE contact Diploma Services at 512 475 7620 with change of address BEFORE clearing debt. THEN, go to the What I Owe website to check for a financial bar or to pay financial obligations online. An EID and password are required to access student accounts.

For diplomas originally issued before 2000, the replacement diploma will bear the signatures of current officials, with the notation Reissued appearing below the date awarded.

All name changes submitted with diploma requests must be accompanied by supporting documentation. If the change of name is due to marriage, a certified copy of the marriage license is required. Certified copies of court-ordered name changes are acceptable. Legal name change requests due to divorce must be sent with a certified copy of the divorce decree which reinstates the maiden name. Signed name change requests will be processed and documentation returned to the sender. Name changes will be reflected on the student’s permanent record and on the reissued diploma.

We can notarize your diploma at no additional charge. Those graduates requesting diplomas for employment purposes overseas may need to investigate what authentication may be required by the country where the diploma will be presented. Diplomas may be sent overnight at your expense; our office uses Federal Express, and those fees will be billed to your credit card.

Diplomas requiring an apostille must be notarized then forwarded to the US Secretary of State’s office. Diploma Services must be contacted directly with your credit card information, expiration date and the country where the diploma will be used.
