The university seal is used to prove authenticity
on FHSU documents. It is exclusively reserved for official
documents such as diplomas, transcripts, certificates and
ceremonial recognition gifts. The university seal is never
to be used for decoration, on letterhead or for general use.
The university seal must have a TM with
it when it is reproduced on a ceremonial commercial product.

At the direction of the provost, FHSU
has implemented a policy concerning the manufacture and distribution
of official university academic certificates. Students who
have made a substantial financial investment and worked hard
to complete a certificate program deserve a certificate that
affirms FHSU’s academic excellence and gives the recipient
a positive impression of the institution. Fort Hays State
is providing a specially designed certificate and presentation
folder to be exclusively used for academic recognition.
To sustain the university's consistent
image of quality, no other academic recognition certificates
are to be substituted or distributed by departments.
The certificate is an 81/2 by 11-inch
white linen, pre-printed certificate that has fields where
departments may insert custom information. The certificate
also includes a gold foil embossed university seal and is
packaged in a matching black folder that has the university
seal embossed on the cover.
FHSU Printing Services will exclusively
produce all academic certificates at a modest cost to departments.
Please contact Printing Services for the
specific guidelines on how to order academic certificates.
To appropriately honor FHSU faculty, staff,
students and friends of the university, please present something
relative to the investment the individual has made to FHSU.
Guidelines are currently in development.
FHSU Printing Services has pre-printed
certificate blanks available for your use. Please contact
Printing Services to order generic certificates blanks.
