How it works

RMIT issues certified, digital versions of its official academic statements to current and past students via My eQuals, a secure, online platform.

An email is sent to your personal email account telling you that RMIT has issued your digital documents and how to access them. (If you're studying at Singapore Institute of Management, the email will be sent to your student account ending in .sg.) You can then access your digital documents via My eQuals - they’re securely stored and permanently available anytime and anywhere.

You can use My eQuals to safely share your digital documents with anyone you choose such as employers, universities and other parties. You control over who can see your records and for how long. You can’t upload or modify any documents in My eQuals.

This new service is now available to current and past students, including international students studying at partner institutes outside Australia. Almost all universities in Australia and New Zealand have signed up to use the My eQuals platform.

Digital documents are safe and secure

Digital documents issued via My eQuals are authentic, tamper-proof and legally valid.

The digital documents contain digital signatures that meet the legal standards set by the European Union for authentic electronic documents, which meets and exceeds requirements in Australia, New Zealand and the USA.

RMIT employs advanced security to produce and certify its digital documents. The systems have been independently tested by security experts.

If you don’t want your academic statements to be issued digitally, you must register your choice to opt out with RMIT Connect at least one month before you complete your program.

Please note that you cannot have printed copies of your digital documents certified. Hard copies of your award documents can be ordered via Student Forms.

Hard copy (paper) academic statements

Hard copy academic statements aren’t going away. RMIT continues to automatically issue a hard copy testamur to graduating students (free of charge).

If you want or need a hard copy transcript, AHEGS, VE Qualification statement or Statement of Attainment, they are still available on request (fees apply).
