Transcripts and academic records

Academic verifications

This page has information about having your official academic documents verified for an employer or agency.

If you are trying to access your own documents, we have information about requesting copies of your academic transcript.

We can verify academic documents such as testamurs or academic transcripts that you’ve given to third parties such as employers or agencies.

Documents can be verified in two ways:

The University’s Student Records office can verify qualifications and the authenticity of specific documents such as transcripts that we have issued in a hard-copy format.

Requesting document verification

To request verification, the third party needs to submit a written request digitally or via mail.

What to include in the request

The request should include the following information in order for us to verify the documents:

  • the student’s full name
  • the student’s date of birth
  • the student’s Student ID number (if known).

If applicable, it should also include:

  • a copy of the document to be verified.

We may be able to verify additional details such as major or enrolment dates may if you provide the third part with a signed, written authorisation.

Academic verification requests will take up to five business days to be processed.
