All University of Illinois graduates with no outstanding University charges will receive one diploma per degree earned, free of charge.
University of Illinois diplomas are 8.5 x 11 inches and sent by first-class mail to a student's “Diploma Address” approximately nine weeks after the date of award. Please check and update this address before leaving the University.
If the diploma is returned to the Office of the Registrar, you will be responsible for providing a corrected address and paying for any forwarding mail charges as well as processing fees.
If your diploma is not returned to the Office of the Registrar and 90 days from the mailing date has passed, you will be responsible for providing the correct address and paying for the cost of the replacement diploma.
University of Illinois' policy prevents mailing a diploma if the student has a past-due account. You may contact the University Student Financial Services and Cashiers Operations with questions about your account balance. Once your account had been cleared, you will need to contact the Office of the Registrar by phone at 217-333-6383 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that we can order and mail your diploma.
Replacement or Duplicate Diploma
The cost of a replacement or duplicate diploma is $20 per copy.
