Many students have asked if they would be re-issued a diploma with William Carey University as the name, since the name has recently changed from a college of a similar name, William Carey College, to now a university. The answer to that question is, "No, the diploma must bear the name of the institution at the time it was granted." The 2007 graduates were the first graduates of William Carey University.

A student may request a duplicate diploma that will have the name of the student as originally printed. The turnaround time for a request for a duplicate diploma is 5 to 7 business days. The duplicate diploma will be mailed or can be picked up in the Office of the Registrar at the Hattiesburg campus. The replacement cost is $30.00 for bachelors, masters, and specialist, and $60.00 for doctoral. If it is to be shipped overseas, the price will be adjusted for international shipping.
