See the different types of academic statements available at RMIT and how to access digital and hardcopy versions.
Due to the current peak period with the graduation activities, any hard copy testamur orders placed after Friday 10 November will be processed towards the end of January 2023. All other academic statement orders (transcript, SAC, AHEGS, SOA) will continue to be fulfilled with a longer processing time.
Please allow adequate time for your statement/s to be processed and delivered. Hardcopy statements take 4-6 weeks to be printed and delivered from the time of your order. Digital statements take up 2-3 business days to be processed. Orders cannot be expedited.
Please note, you must pay all debts to RMIT before you can order any academic statements.
Some statements are only available to particular student cohorts (such as vocational education or higher education).
See below for information about who is eligible to get each statement and how to access or order digital and hardcopy versions.
A transcript is the official record of your studies at RMIT University. It documents all of your programs, courses, results and any exemptions granted or withdrawals from courses after the census date. Results can't be removed from your transcript.
Where applicable, transcripts include details of completion, conferral (graduation) and University-awarded prizes and recognition.
No. Your academic transcript is the official record of your study at RMIT University. It is not possible to:
Available to all current and past students, including students who did not complete their program.
You can order a transcript any time as a current or past student. If you are a current student, please be aware your transcript will only include results available at the time of order and do not update automatically when you complete more courses/programs. You will need to order a new transcript for new courses/programs to be displayed on your transcript.
Please note: We are unable to provide any unofficial academic statements.
You must wait 48 hours after you have been marked as 'complete' in your program before you can access or order a finalised transcript.
A testamur (or graduation certificate) is a legal document that satisfies Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) requirements. Your testamur includes your name, the qualification you completed, the date of conferral and the University seal. Testamurs are available to all students when they graduate at a ceremony or in absentia.
Proof of graduation for employers and other opportunities. A hard copy testamur is suitable for framing, to showcase your achievements.
A testamur is available to all RMIT students who have been conferred (graduated).
The type of testamur you receive depends on your qualification.
You must wait until after you have graduated from your program (at a ceremony or in absentia) before you can access or order a testamur.
For vocational education students, your testamur is included in your VE Qualification Statement (see section below).
*This will be subtracted from the ceremony fee for 2023 in absentia graduates.
You can order a replacement hardcopy of your testamur for $170 including tracked postage. Please note, alumni are entitled to only one hard copy of their testamur. Delivery time is 4-6 weeks from the date of your order.
Alumni from 2005 onwards can order a digital testamur as part of their full set of digital statements, for $25. Allow 2-3 business days from the date of your order.
The Vocational Education (VE) Qualification Statement lists competencies or modules achieved under the nationally endorsed curriculum. Your VE Qualification Statement is a graduation document that satisfies ASQA requirements.
Note, your statement may not include competencies or modules completed before 2002.
A VE Qualification Statement is only available to students who have completed a vocational education program (certificate I-IV and diploma programs).
If you are currently studying in your vocational education program, you will not be able to request a VE Qualification Statement until you have completed your program.
Higher education (bachelor and post-graduate programs) and Foundation Studies students receive a testamur in place of a VE Qualification Statement.
48 hours after you have been marked as 'complete' in your program, you can access or order a VE Qualification Statement containing your Vocational Education Qualification and list of competencies/modules.
Once you have graduated at a ceremony or in absentia, your vocational education testamur will be added to your VE Qualification Statement.
*This will be subtracted from the ceremony fee for 2022 in absentia graduates.
If you want a replacement statement, you can order a full set of digital academic statements for $25. Alternatively, you can order a replacement hardcopy of your statement for $55 (Australia Post) or $90 (international mail).
If you complete a skill set or accredited short course, you’ll receive a digital Statement of Attainment.
The Statement of Attainment lists competencies or modules achieved under the nationally endorsed curriculum. Your Statement of Attainment is a graduation document that satisfies ASQA requirements.
Please note your statement may not include competencies or modules completed before 2002.
A Statement of Attainment is only available to students who have completed or discontinued a vocational education program (certificate I-IV and diploma programs). A Statement or Attainment is not available to higher education (bachelor and post-graduate programs) or Foundation Studies students.
If you are currently studying in your vocational education program, you will not be able to request a Statement of Attainment until you have been marked as 'complete' in your program or have discontinued your program.
You must wait until 48 hours after you have been marked as 'complete' in your program to access or order a Statement of Attainment.
Your Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) provides details of your studies in a higher education program. It can be used to have your qualification recognised internationally.
AHEGS is an Australian Government initiative designed to promote the national and international professional recognition of Australian qualifications, and the international mobility of Australian graduates.
An AHEGS is only available to students who have graduated from a higher education program (bachelor and post-graduate programs) from 1 December 2011 onwards.
An AHEGS is not available to vocational education students (certificate I-IV and diploma programs) or Foundation Studies students.
You must wait until after you have graduated from your program (at a ceremony or in absentia) before you can access or order an AHEGS.
A Statement of Academic Completion (SAC) is a document that confirms you have completed all the requirements of your program. A SAC is an optional completion document and is different to a testamur (graduation certificate).
A SAC can be used to prove your study dates for visa requirements. For most other purposes we recommend using your academic transcript (see above), which also includes completion and conferral dates, where applicable.
A SAC is only available to students who have completed their program from 2005 onwards.
From October 2022, if you are marked as ‘complete’ in your program, a digital copy of your SAC will be available free via My eQuals within 48 hours after the school has confirmed your completion.
Completed students and alumni from 2005 onwards are able to order a set of available digital academic statements (including the SAC) for $25 via Student Forms. Allow 2-3 business days from the date of your order.
If you want to order a hardcopy SAC, you can do so via Student Forms (Australia Post: $65, International mail: $90). Delivery time is 4-6 weeks from the date of your order.
