Graduate documents

When you graduate you receive an academic transcript, a testamur (certificate) and an Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) – all free of charge.

Academic transcript

This is your official record of study at Deakin. It lists your course, units, majors and specialisations, grades, dates of study and any honours. Prospective employers may use it to verify your qualifications.

Fill in the quick online form and we’ll send your new transcript in the post. Or, drop in to Student Central on any campus to collect in person.

Testamur

A testamur (or certificate) is the award certificate and official document that confirms the conferral of your course and includes your majors and honours.

If you complete a double degree you will receive two testamurs – one for each stream of your degree. They will be presented together in one testamur pocket.

How to replace your testamur

We can send you a new testamur for free if you didn’t receive your original (within 12 months of conferral/ceremony date) or if it was damaged in the post. For all other reasons there’s a charge.

Please choose from one of the payment options below to request a replacement testamur.

Option 1

Complete the Request - replacement testamur (PDF 300KB) form and send it to the Graduations Office with a cheque or money order made out to Deakin University.

Testamurs from former Deakin institutions

Unfortunately, we can't replace testamurs from institutions that are no longer part of Deakin, such as the State College of Victoria (Geelong and Warrnambool), Institute of Advanced Education (IAE) or Victoria College (Burwood, Toorak and Clayton).

AHEGS

Your Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) includes your award, full academic results (including failures and late withdrawals), prizes, internships and information about Deakin and Australia’s higher education system. The AHEGS helps international audiences understand your qualifications. When you graduate, you’ll receive an AHEGS without charge. Charges only apply for replacement AHEGS.

How to replace your AHEGS

If you’ve lost or need a new AHEGS, just fill in the quick online form and we’ll send your new AHEGS in the post.

Replacement AHEGS charges

Replacement AHEGS with postage in Australia $40

Additional copies of AHEGS when ordered with replacement $10

Statement of Results

A Statement of Results (or evidence of enrolment) is an unofficial record of your results. It's free and you can request one by contacting Student Central

A Statement of Results is not available for antecedent institutions of Deakin University, such as the Gordon Institute of Technology, State College of Victoria (Geelong/Warrnambool), IAE and Victoria College (Burwood/Toorak/Clayton).

If you would like a summary of your units from this study period, rather than a full academic transcript, you can run an 'evidence of enrolment' through StudentConnect.

Law graduates

If you're a law graduate wanting to practice law, the Board of Examiners (Victorian Legal Admissions Board) needs a copy of your transcript and Academic Conduct Report. 

To request your Academic Conduct Report, contact Student Central directly on +61 3 9244 6333 or enquire@deakin.edu.au

Student Central will forward a copy of your academic transcript to the Assistant to the Head of School in the School of Law. 

An Academic Conduct Report will then be generated and forwarded to the Board of Examiners with your academic transcript and a letter from the Head of School confirming you have completed the course requirements for the LLB.

Education graduates

If you're an education graduate, we'll automatically send your results to the Victorian Institute of Teaching. So, no need to do anything.

Letters after your name

Known as appellations or postnomials, the letters after your name are abbreviations of your qualifications and can assist people in identifying your level of education.
