Requesting a diploma following your Convocation ceremony

If you didn’t attend your Convocation ceremony and need to obtain your diploma, you can submit a request via Service Point Checkout and pay the requisite fees to have your diploma mailed or prepared for pick up.

Modifying the name on your diploma

If you have had a name change after graduation, and need to obtain a replacement diploma with your new name, you must first follow the steps to request a name change by completing and signing a Personal Data Change Form and submitting the requisite supporting documentation. Once you have received confirmation that the name on your McGill record has been updated, you can then submit a request for a replacement diploma via Service Point Checkout, provide the requested personal and program details, upload a government-issued photo ID and pay the replacement fee.
