Paper Diplomas

Johns Hopkins University diplomas are original, engraved, legal documents and cannot be copied, reduced in size, or reproduced.

When you apply to graduate make certain all information is accurate. Your diploma is a legal document, therefore, the printed name must match what is listed in your student record.

To change or correct your name, please contact your Registrar’s Office before you apply to graduate. You will need to provide legal documentation to correct or change first or last name in your student record.
