Academic documents

When you graduate you receive three academic documents: an academic transcript, testamur (or award certificate) and your Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS).

If you happen to lose your documents or want a digital version to share with employers, we can help.

Types of documents

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.

Testamur

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

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.

AHEGS are only available for courses conferred from 2010 onwards. AHEGS for awards completed prior to 2010 are not available.

Statement of Results

Your Statement of Results (or evidence of enrolment) is an unofficial record of your results. It's free and current students can access one through StudentConnect. If you no longer have access to StudentConnect please contact 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).

Digital documents

You can access digital versions of your academic documents through the My eQuals portal, a secure online platform trusted by 45 of Australia and New Zealand’s 47 universities.

My eQuals allows you to access your documents anytime, from anywhere in the world. With My eQuals, you can rest assured knowing your important documents are safely stored online and protected using banking-level security.

My eQuals also streamlines the process of sharing your academic documents with others. Instead of having to scan documents or send your originals, you can simply share digital versions with employers or agencies using a hyperlink (URL).

How do I order my digital documents?

  1. Order your documents through the online order form.
  2. You’ll receive an email from My eQuals within 2 business days confirming that your document is available.
  3. If you already have a My eQuals account you can log in and view the document.
  4. If this is your first time receiving Deakin documents via My eQuals, follow the link in your email to set up your account and verify your email address.

How much does it cost?

Students who graduate from Trimester 1 2018 onwards will be automatically provided with a free digital copy of their academic transcript, testamur and AHEGS on the My eQuals portal.

Students who graduated prior to Trimester 1 2018 can purchase a digital copy of each document for a one-off cost. Once you've purchased a document, it will be securely stored on My eQuals, ready to access and share at any time.

DocumentCost
Digital transcript, testamur and AHEGS for students graduating from Trimester 1 2018 onwards Free
Digital transcript for students who graduated prior to Trimester 1 2018 or who have not yet completed their course $20
Digital testamur for students who graduated prior to Trimester 1 2018 $60
Digital AHEGS for students who graduated prior to Trimester 1 2018 (only available for courses conferred from 2010 onwards) $20

Can I link multiple My eQuals accounts together?

Yes, you can link the accounts together to create a unified repository of your academic credentials.

You might want to do this if you already have a My eQuals account with another education provider.

You'll need to validate your identity for the second educational provider by logging into the account, then linking both accounts via the ‘Account Linking’ feature on the My eQuals site (you can find ‘Account Linking’ under Help > Managing My Account).

Sharing your digital documents

My eQuals allows you to securely share your documents with employers or agencies using a hyperlink.

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.

Appellations

Appellations (or postnominals) are letters that can feature after your name once your award has been conferred. They're abbreviations of your qualifications that relate to the degree you've completed and can assist people in identifying your level of education.
