Diplomas will be mailed to the permanent address on record after final degree audits have been completed. Only one original diploma is issued per student. A duplicate diploma may be issued in case of the loss or destruction of the original. Each replacement diploma bears a notation at the bottom stating that the diploma is a replacement of the original and listing the date of its issue. If you wish to request a replacement diploma, students will be required to complete the Request for Duplicate Diploma form accompanied by payment of $30.00 to Soka University of America. If a financial obligation is owed to the university, the replacement diploma will not be released until the account balance is settled.
