How do I replace destroyed documents?

You are here:

We realize and appreciate how important Universal Life Church documents are to our ministers.

If your documents were damaged or destroyed due to unfortunate circumstances such as a fire or flood, or in transport during relocation, ULC Online and ULC Seminary can help you with getting your documents re-issued.

The following can be re-issued at a discount to assist with easing your personal hardship, however the full amount in shipping costs will still apply:

  • Course Diplomas
  • Special Titles
  • Degrees

The items you request to have re-issued using our hardship discount must be on record as being previously fulfilled by Universal Life Church Online, ULC Seminary, or from our ULC Headquarters in Modesto, California.

We apologize for this inconvenience, but the following items must be re-ordered as new and are not discounted:

  • Ordination Credential
  • Wallet cards & Badges
  • Press Pass
