Replacement Credential Request (Diplomas and Certificates)

If a graduate would like to request a credential reflecting Messiah's new university status---or if a graduate's original credential is misplaced, damaged or a duplicate is needed for employment purposes, they may request a replacement diploma or certificate by submitting a formal signed request to the Registrar's Office in the School of Graduate Studies. If your credential arrived damaged, please contact the graduate registrar's office at gradregistrar@messiah.edu.

*Please be advised that beginning July 1, 2020, all replacement credentials will be issued under the Messiah University name with the current format, size, and school officials' signatures and names. (Effective July 1, 2020, the dimensions of the Messiah University diploma are 11" x 8.5" landscape).

For previous Messiah College graduates, a notation will be made on the replacement credential stating "Original (diploma/certificate) issued by Messiah College."
