Diploma Replacement Policy
Any graduate who requests a replacement diploma will automatically receive a diploma with the Shorter University name. However, upon request, the university can also provide a Shorter College diploma to those graduates who attended the university while it bore the Shorter College name (ie: until May 31, 2010).
Additionally, any student who graduated from Shorter while it bore the “college” status may request a diploma with the Shorter University name.
Requesting a Duplicate Diploma for Employment Purposes
Please be advised that unless your prospective employer is asking specifically for a copy of your diploma, a transcript is a more legal and expedient document to serve as proof of your course work/graduation.
However, if an original copy of your diploma is mandatory, you should follow the instructions above for "Requesting a Diploma."
