Your academic transcript is a certified record of your enrolment history at the University of Canberra, including your results, the courses you’ve started and your conferred awards.
How you receive copies of your testamur and transcript will depend on whether you graduate in person or in absentia. Either way, you should receive an email link that will give you access to free electronic versions of your graduation documents via My eQuals after the event. If you don’t receive this email, contact the Student Centre.
I graduated in person
You will have received free hard copies of your testamur and academic transcript.
I graduated in absentia
You can collect free hard copies of your testamur and academic transcript in person by bringing a valid photo identification to the Student Centre. We'll contact you by email if you've not collected these documents several weeks after the ceremony and ask you to confirm your address so we can send them to you by courier.
Your testamur is your official academic certificate confirming the completion of your award. You can order a new hard copy testamur for $150 and choose to have it delivered by post or collect it at the Student Centre. Cite your student ID number when you place the order; if you forget to do so, let us know by sending an email to the Student Centre.
Replace a lost or damaged testamur
If your testamur has been lost, damaged or destroyed, you'll need to follow these steps before we can give you a new hard copy:
- Provide a completed and witnessed statutory declaration that states your testamur has been lost, damaged or destroyed, describing how this happened. If it's been lost, you should say in your statutory declaration that you'll return the replacement certificate if you find the original.
- Return your damaged testamur in person to the Student Centre or via registered mail to: Replacement certificate, Student Centre, University of Canberra, ACT, 2601, Australia.
