The University of Mary Washington provides the initial diploma to students and it is awarded at time of graduation. If a student does not attend graduation, he or she is expected to make the Office of the Registrar aware of the current mailing address to which diplomas can be sent. We also encourage pick-up from our office in Lee Hall beginning on the Tuesday following commencement. Any diploma not picked-up or returned by the post office will be held for one year and then destroyed.
Replacement diplomas can be purchased for $25. Requests must be made in writing and will be modeled as our current diploma. Currently, the UMW diploma is 12 in. by 15 in., oriented landscape and printed with a gold embossed seal. Please allow several weeks for processing.
Requests should be mailed to the attention of:
- Office of the Registrar, Lee Hall 206
- University of Mary Washington
- Fredericksburg, VA 22401
