Graduation

Lost or Damaged Certificates

  • Your degree/award certificate (testamur) is a legal document, issued under the direction of the Chancellor and the Vice-Chancellor, and imprinted with the University Seal.
  • If you lose your testamur, or it is damaged, a replacement can only be made after you have made a statutory declaration outlining the circumstances of the loss or damage, and pay a fee of $80.
  • Your reissued testamur will have the word 'replacement' on it as you can only ever have one original.
