Certificate of graduate status

If your degree has already been conferred you can obtain a certificate of graduate status. This statement lists your name, degree(s) name and conferral date(s), but not your units of study. It is printed on official stationery and is not the same as your degree certificate (testamur).

It can be used to confirm completion of your qualification, if you don't want to use your testamur (or don't have access to it). For example if you need to provide proof of your qualification when applying for a job.

How to order a certificate of graduate status

Your certificate of graduate status is available from five business days after you've graduated. You can order a hard-copy certificate online. Electronic copies cannot be issued.

Order online

If you would like to order online you can submit an online Certificate of graduate status request form and we will send you your certificate by post.

You need to attach a copy of personal photo identification with your signature visible, as it appears on a legitimate form of personal identification (such as your driver’s licence or passport). Your request will not be processed if this is not included. Local library cards, Medicare cards, or birth certificates are not accepted.

Payment and processing times

If you order online, once you have submitted your request we will verify the information provided and email you with an invoice and payment instructions. Payments can be made by credit card and are charged in Australian dollars.

The payment will be non-refundable if your certificate of graduate status has been printed.
