Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University

Diploma Size Reduction

According to input from both the Office of the Registrar and the Student Affairs Office, the diplomas for advanced degrees (i.e., master's degrees and beyond) at Thomas Jefferson University are so large, that graduate's often contact them in search of the safest method in which they can shrink down their diploma — most often due to the request from a new employer.

The most reliable method we have discovered is to use a machine called a "Wide Format Scan System" that may be found at any FedEx Kinkos Store. Please go to their Web site to find a store near you.

Please remember that although your current employer may not have asked for a copy of your diploma, another employer in the future may ask for it, so it is best to go through the process before the diploma is framed.
