Replacement Diploma Policy

On May 17, 1998, Point Loma Nazarene College officially assumed university status. Students who graduated prior to May 1999 may request a facsimile diploma reflecting the institution's name change to Point Loma Nazarene University.


  • The facsimile diploma certifies, under the university name, that the individual graduated from the institution, although under a different institutional name. The signatures of current officers of the Board of Trustees and administrators are used.
  • Graduates of Pasadena/Point Loma are not required to surrender their original diploma in order to receive a university facsimile diploma. 
  • The university diploma, for those who graduated before the name change took effect, is only a facsimile of a diploma, not a replacement diploma. 
  • Requests must be made in writing, along with the graduate's signature, to the Alumni Office. 
  • The cost for the facsimile diploma is $45. This amount covers direct and indirect costs of formatting, producing and mailing the facsimile diploma.
