Replacement Diplomas

Students or alumni in need of a replacement diploma must submit a Request for Duplicate Diploma and submit it to the Registrar at registrar@wit.edu. The form must be notarized, and there is a $50 replacement fee due at the time the completed form is submitted.

Time to Degree   

Students must complete all requirements for their graduate degree within seven (7) years from the time of enrollment. If a student does not meet this requirement the student may petition the department chair or director of their graduate program for reinstatement of credits completed that were outside the seven (7) year time frame. 

Programs No Longer Offered  

Any student who is enrolled in a program which is no longer offered by the University must complete all graduation requirements for that program within one year after the original expected date of graduation. Any student who fails to satisfy all requirements within the one-year period must have their academic records evaluated by the department chair or director of graduate programs to determine which course of study and program must be followed. Beyond the one-year statute of limitation the University will not grant a degree for any program which has been discontinued.

Degree Application

Students who believe they are ready to receive their degree from Wentworth Institute of Technology and have a grade point average of 3.0 or higher are required to complete a formal degree application. (See Academic Calendar for specific dates.) Degree applications will not be accepted from students with a grade point average below 3.0. Applications for graduation are submitted via LeopardWeb and are required to ensure the Registrar has received all student credentials. Degrees conferred reflect the graduation that follows the student’s successful completion of all degree requirements; degrees are conferred in April, August, and December.
