Providing academic transcripts to a potential employer or a prospective academic institution is commonplace; however, it is equally important to know how to obtain a copy of your diploma. Obtaining a copy of your diploma is more difficult than obtaining your transcripts in the state of North Carolina. North Carolina grants multiple types of diplomas, and there is no standardized way to obtain them. The type of diploma you earned determines the course of action you must take to obtain a copy of your North Carolina diploma.
