Williams College will provide a replacement diploma in situations where the original diploma was lost or damaged or if there has been a legal change of name.  Replacement diplomas reflect the current diploma format and display the current Williams president and secretary’s signatures.  Replacement diplomas also bear the words "Duplicate Diploma" on the back of the diploma.
In order to protect the integrity of the diploma process, we require the following when requesting a replacement diploma:

  • Photocopy of one form of identification from the following: passport, birth certificate, driver's license, social security card
  • Full legal name at the time of graduation
  • Year of graduation
  • Shipping address
  • If your name has been legally changed, you must enclose a copy of the pertinent legal name change document(s). Upon receipt of these documents, your student record will be updated and a replacement diploma will be issued.

Please enclose a check made payable to Williams College in the amount of $75.00.  Send the accompanying form of identification, pertinent legal name change documents if applicable, and payment to:

    Attn: Nicki Renaud, Replacement Diploma
    Registrar's Office, Williams College
    P.O. Box 696
    Williamstown, MA 01267

Please allow 4-6 weeks for processing.

Please don’t hesitate to contact Nicki Renaud ( 413-597-4286) if you have questions about the process.
