Replacement Diploma

A replacement diploma may be ordered from the Office of the Registrar. The graduate requesting the new diploma must submit an original notarized statement explaining the reason for the request. The new diploma will be stamped "duplicate diploma." If a replacement diploma is required due to the condition of the original diploma, the original must be surrendered to the Office of the Registrar prior to a replacement being ordered.

There is a $75.00 fee for the replacement diploma. Please make check payable to the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW). Replacement diplomas will be sent "certified mail" in approximately 30 days. Please provide our office with your complete mailing address.

Please Note: For graduates prior to 1970, it will be necessary to contact Marquette University, Office of the Registrar, P.O. Box 1881, Milwaukee, WI 53201.

Many states require official copies of your diploma for licensing purposes. At the time of graduation you received the one and only copy of your diploma. We do not have copies on file.

Contribute to Travel Fund

The Travel Award is given to outstanding students who wish to participate in National scientific meetings.

The Travel Fund helps students to attend seminars and conferences to present their findings to colleagues, meet with national and international scientific leaders, and further their knowledge in specialized scientific areas.

Our goal is to grow the Travel Fund so that no students miss out on this portion of the learning process.

If you are interested in contributing to the Travel Fund program for graduate students, please contact the Development Office or the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.

Help Recruit Graduate Students

Each year Graduate School representatives visit dozens of college campuses across the county. The goal is to raise awareness and ultimately attract prospective students to the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. The Graduate School asks Alumni to get engaged in the recruitment process by sharing your experiences from the Medical College of Wisconsin.

As an Alumnus from the College your first-hand experiences help us create new relationships with students and faculty from across the country. If you are interested in enhancing recruitment efforts, working with the Graduate School to help identify strong students and/or science programs, please contact the Graduate School Recruitment Office.

We have scheduled appearances throughout the country and welcome your support at these events. The campus visits provide opportunities to interact with constituents and raise awareness to the degree programs offered at MCW.

You can help in the recruitment process. Just a few things that can make a world of difference:

  • Keep your information updated in the alumni database
  • If you are currently a faculty member, postdoctoral fellow or administrative staff member at a college or university and/or can identify faculty or staff on your campus that can help us recruit students to the GSBS, please send us that information
  • Participate in a graduate school event on your campus on behalf of MCW
  • Share your success stories with our current and future graduate students by agreeing to have us post information to the website and in collateral materials

If you would like to help in the recruitment process, contac the Recruitment Office at
