All others pay per instructions on the request form. The Registrar cannot issue transcripts for students with outstanding fines at the GTU Library or with unresolved financial obligations to DSPT.

Transcript requests are processed, and transcripts printed, only on Wednesdays. Please make sure you plan ahead and give ample time for your request to be processed. DSPT does not issue digital transcripts.
 
GTU Common M.A. students who are affiliated with DSPT must request transcripts using the GTU Transcript Request form pdf from the GTU Consortial Registrar's Office.

1. The charge for a replacement or duplicate diploma is $75 USD and checks may be made payable to the Dominican School of Philosophy & Theology.
2. Replacement diplomas must be requested by the bearer of the diploma with that individual's signature.
3. To replace a lost or destroyed diploma, complete the Diploma Replacement Application pdf  and submit it to the DSPT Registrar by post or in person.

Replacement of Diploma Due to Name Change
 
If you have a legal name change and request a diploma in that new name, your Dominican School of Philosophy & Theology records will be changed to reflect that new name. After the DSPT completes that step, your Dominican School of Philosophy & Theology financial records and your future academic transcripts will carry that new name. 
 
Graduates who are in need of a replacement diploma due to a name change should please note the following instructions:
 
1. To replace a diploma because of a name change, please complete the Diploma Replacement Application pdf  and the Name Change Affidavit pdf . Both forms must be accompanied by the appropriate legal documentation of the name change as well as the return of the original diploma.
2. The charge for a replacement diploma is $75 USD and checks may be made payable to the Dominican School of Philosophy & Theology.
 
The new diploma will have the wording "Copy Reissued Due to Legal Name Change" and the date reissued at the bottom right of the document. Once we receive your request, your order will be processed.  Orders from within the U.S.A. will be processed within 4 weeks from the time of request; orders outside the U.S.A. will be processed within 6 weeks from the time of request.

The following types of documents can be used when submitting the form in-person at the Office of the DSPT Registrar:
 
1. Photographic documents that show the new name. Typical documents are a driver's license; passport; military I.D.; alien registration card (Green Card).
2. Legal documents that show the former and new name. Typical documents are a certified copy of a marriage certificate; court order; divorce decree; naturalization papers can be used to document name change for a complete change of first or last name.
