Replacement Diploma

The College of Arts and Sciences, in collaboration with Parchment ordering services, provides graduates with both a printed paper diploma and (beginning in 2024) a digital diploma.  If you have lost your original diploma, you may order a replacement via Parchment Ordering services.  

Order Here

IMPORTANT! Always order your replacement diploma to be sent directly to yourself.  You can share the digital diploma later, as many times as you want, and the shared digital diploma comes with a certificate of authenticity every time.  But if you send the original order to a third party, the third party become the owner of the document instead of you.  Do not place an order which sends your diploma to a third party. 

Please proceed directly to the Lewis & Clark Diploma and Transcript Ordering Service. Follow the instructions to create an account, or log in to an existing account. You can find a short video about creating an account here. We strongly recommend that if you use your LC email to set up your account, that you also enter a personal email address. This will allow you to continue using the service even after your LC email address is deactivated.
