Diplomas and official documents

The official documents listed below are issued by the Registrar’s Office.

All official documents are issued on the basis of the personal data of the students and former students (name, first name, gender, birthdate, and nationality) as they appear on the most recent ID present in our database when the documents are issued.

If the personal data changes afterwards (e.g. name change in case of marriage or divorce), no new official document is issued by EPFL.

The two following exceptions are accepted:

– In the case of a legal decision with retroactive effect, the diplomas, transcripts, and diploma supplements may be issued again on the basis of the new data, under the condition that the student or former student return the original diplomas and transcripts. To this end, the student or former student must provide us with a copy of the legal decision, as well as with a copy of the new ID. This procedure is free of charge.

– In the case of a sex change, a written request, signed by the student or former student, is enough for the diplomas, transcripts, and diploma supplements to be issued again on the basis of the new sex and first names, under the condition that the student or former student return the original diplomas and transcripts. This procedure is free of charge.

In both of these cases, the documents that may be issued later on will also be issued on the basis of the new data.
