Questions About Our Diplomas, Transcripts & Degrees

"How realistic are your fake diplomas and transcripts?"

The diplomas, transcripts and certificates we produce are as close as to the real thing as you can get without spending years in school and tens of thousands of dollars.

We realize that most people interested in purchasing a “fake diploma” or “fake transcripts”, want the diploma, transcripts or certificate they purchase to look as “real” as possible. All of our diploma templates, transcript templates, seal designs and materials we use to make our diplomas are based on and modeled after REAL diplomas and transcripts from some of the largest colleges and universities in the U.S. and around the world. In many cases, the novelty diplomas, transcripts and certificates we produce end up looking MORE authentic than the genuine diploma, transcripts or certificate that you would be issued from most large colleges and universities.

If you are looking for a replica or authentic-quality novelty diploma, certificate, transcript or degree, you are in luck. We are absolutely confident that you could show any of the products we sell to ANYONE and they would never guess that it is a novelty diploma, transcript or certificate you ordered online.

"What diploma and certificate sizes do you offer?"

Unlike many of our competitors, Cheaper-than-Tuition now offers diplomas in a variety of sizes – Even the more difficult, more expensive to produce “wide format” sizes.

Our diplomas are available in the following sizes:

8.5 x 11 – Most High School & Bachelor diplomas

11 x 14 – Common Master & Ph.D. diploma sizes

8.5 x 14 – Common European diploma/certificate sizes

11 x 17 – Common European Master & Ph.D diploma/certificate sizes

"Do your diplomas, certificates or transcripts have any watermarks or anything printed on them labeling them as 'novelty', 'fake' or from"


Our products DO NOT feature any type of permanent “watermark” nor is there is anything permanently printed on any of our products labeling them as “fake” in any way.

Our products DO come with a small sticker however labeling them as a “Novelty Document”. These stickers are removable but are just meant to serve as a reminder that all of the novelty diplomas, transcripts and certificates we sell are STRICTLY intended for novelty, decoration or “gag” purposes only.

"Do your diplomas come with a diploma frame or diploma cover?"

We now offer high quality, university-grade, padded leatherette diploma covers in a variety of colors for diploma sizes 8.5 x 11 and 11 x 14 inches.

As far as diploma frames are concerned, we don’t currently offer these due to the fact that they can commonly be damaged during shipping. If you are looking for a high quality diploma frame, you can generally find a great selection at one of your local department stores, custom framing shops, other online websites that specialize in diploma frames and even college bookstores.

"Can you make fake transcripts for a college or university in Canada, Europe or Australia?"


Our online order forms are largely set-up for U.S. and Canada grading formats though, so if you would like to order a set of fake college or university transcripts, that use something other than the standard grading format used in the U.S. and Canada, we recommend downloading our Custom Transcript Form (in .DOCX Microsoft Word Format; right-click + “save as” if clicking the link alone doesn’t work), filling in as much information as you can and then contacting us.

"Can you make a fake diploma or certificate in a foreign language? What if I want a fake diploma from Mexico, Italy, France or China?"

We generally only offer the fake diploma designs and templates in English as featured on our website but we might be able to help with that. Contact us with the exact details and we will see what we can do.

"I want to order a set of fake college transcripts but I need it to list the EXACT classes and grades I want. Can you do that?"

YES! – You can either have us choose which classes to list on your transcript based on your desired degree type, major and grades/GPA or we DO offer the option for you to tell us EXACTLY what information you would like on your transcripts. This option can require a bit more work on our end though, so we do charge a $49.99 fee for this service.

For more information or if you would like to go ahead and get started, please download our Custom Transcript Form (Microsoft Word .DOCX file; right-click > “Save As” if clicking the link itself doesn’t begin the download).

After completing this form with all of your desired information, you can upload it when you submit your order using our Transcript Order Form or Diploma + Transcripts Order Form.

"If I buy fake transcripts from you can I just have them list a few classes or semesters? ... I want them to look like I haven't graduated yet or just took a few classes."

Not a problem!

We actually offer two options as far as that goes.

  1. You can choose to just have us list a specific amount of classes/semesters while still using our own class list based on your desired degree type, major and overall grade/GPA (a $24.99 option) or…
  2. You can specify your own EXACT classes, grades and GPA (a $49.99 option). For more information or this option please download our Custom Transcript Form (It’s a Microsoft Word .DOCX file; right-click the link > “Save As” if clicking the link itself doesn’t begin the download). If you choose this option, complete our Custom Transcript Form given the instructions provided with all of your desired transcript information and upload it when you submit your order using our Transcript Order Form or Diploma + Transcripts Order Form.

"How many copies do I get if I order fake transcripts from you?"

Unlike many of our competitors, we include THREE COPIES of all of our fake academic transcripts with every order. We do have options for additional copies as well though if you need them.

"If I send you a copy of my real transcripts from The University of _______________ can you match it? I just need to have a few grades changed."

We can most likely produce custom transcripts with your desired information or changes using one of our own custom transcript templates. Using our Custom Transcript Form, you can actually customize and tell us EXACTLY what classes, grades, semesters, GPA, etc. you would like to have listed on your transcript. We do however charge an additional $49.99 for this option since it generally requires a bit more work on our part.

"Do your fake transcripts come in sealed envelopes?"

Most of our customers prefer to view a copy of their transcripts and all of the information listed before showing it to anyone and also to ensure all of the information on the transcript is correct, so our transcripts do not come in sealed envelopes.

This may be an option we offer in the future though, so if you absolutely need your novelty transcripts to include official-looking sealed transcript envelopes, check back with us soon!

"Do you make fake TESOL or TEFL Certificates (aka: 'Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages' certificates)?"


We have just recently updated our site and haven’t added the “Novelty Certificates & Awards” page quite yet if you don’t see it under the “Products” or “Store” links above. This is something we can do though. Contact Us for more information!

"Can you make fake Fraternity or Sorority certificates or awards?"

We are currently in the process of adding fake fraternity and sorority certificates actually. Contact Us for more info!

"Can I see a sample of what my diploma or transcript will look like before I order?"

Questions Regarding Employment, “Verification” & Using a “Fake Degree”.

"Can I use one of your fake diplomas, transcripts or certificates to apply for a job or get a promotion?"

As our Disclaimer, Terms & Conditions state, we DO NOT suggest or condone using any of our products to try to obtain a job, a raise or for anything other than what would be considered novelty use, gag/practical joke purposes, use on film sets or for decoration.

"What if my employer wants to check? Would they know if a fake degree I purchased from you was fake?"

Once again, all of the products and services we,, sell are designed, produced and intended for NOVELTY USE ONLY. The diplomas, transcripts and certificates we sell are fake, meaning NOT REAL. They are not designed or intended to be used as if they were real (as issued by an accredited school, college or university) and will not pass any type of educational background check or verification.
