All graduates will receive a Testamur, Official Statement of Academic Record and an Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS).
Testamur—A testamur is the official certification document that confirms a qualification has been awarded to an individual.
Official Statement of Academic Record—An Official Statement of Academic Record is a certified statement detailing your academic record at USC. The Official Statement of Academic Record (academic transcript) issued at your graduation contains the date the award was conferred as well as a notation of “Requirements Completed” and will list any major(s) and minor(s) confirmed by your faculty.
Graduation Statement (AHEGS)—The Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) describes the nature, level, context and status of the studies that were completed by graduates and comprises information about the award, institution, graduate’s academic achievements and the Australian higher education system.
A Statement of Completion is your notification that you have completed your program. The Statement of Completion can be used as proof of your graduate status until you receive your graduation documents.
Receiving your documents
Graduates who attend their Graduation Ceremony will receive their documents during the ceremony.
Graduation documents are posted to in absentia graduates within 10 working days of the ceremony.
Ensure your documents are sent to the correct address by keeping your contact details up-to-date on USC Central. Please be aware that mailing times to international destinations can vary greatly from country to country.
