Forms for graduation
Use the following forms to change your personal details (which are printed on your testamur at graduation), to graduate in absentia and to get a replacement testamur or academic transcript.
|Type of form||Usage|
|Change of personal details (PDF, 279KB)||
Use this form if your name or other details have changed. You must provide certified evidence of your correct name at least ten working days before your ceremony.
You can either present original documentation at the Student Centre or post a photocopy certified by a Justice of the Peace or other qualified person as a true copy of the original. Faxed copies are not accepted.
If you bring your original documentation into the Student Centre, please advise them if your graduation ceremony is within the following 3 weeks to ensure prompt processing. If we receive your documentation within 10 days of your ceremony you will be charged for a replacement testamur and transcript.
|Graduating in absentia (PDF, 41KB)||
If you have been assigned to a ceremony and you do not attend, you will automatically graduate in absentia and your testamur and academic record will be mailed to you. Fill out this form with your details so your documents are emailed to the correct address.
You cannot graduate in absentia and subsequently attend a graduation ceremony in Sydney.
|Replacement testamur (PDF, 176KB)||
The Graduations Office can arrange to have a replacement testamur issued when the original has been irretrievably lost or destroyed. Your request must include a Statutory Declaration (contained within the form) affirming loss or destruction of the original testamur. Please note you are only permitted to have one original copy of each testamur.
A payment of A$95 is required for each testamur being collected or posted within Australia. For testamurs being posted abroad, the cost is A$120. Payment can be made by credit card, cheque or money order (made payable to the University of Sydney). You can also pay by cash if submitting your application form in person at the Student Centre.
|Replacement academic transcript or Certificate of Graduate Status (PDF, 332KB)||
An academic transcript is an offical record of your studies. It includes all units of study attempted, the grade and mark achieved, and completion details (if applicable).
You may also purchase a Certificate of Graduate Status. This is an official statement which lists the degree/s you have completed and the graduation date/s. No units of study or academic results are included.
