Additional information about testamurs


Replacement hard copy testamurs

You are entitled to possess only one hard copy testamur for each conferred award. RMIT does not hold copies of testamurs and a testamur can only be reissued when the original testamur has been damaged, lost, stolen or destroyed, or when the original was never received.

You may be required to return your original testamur and/or provide further information before a replacement can be issued.

Name on your testamur

The name on your testamur must appear exactly as it is on your RMIT student record. Exceptions may be granted in extenuating circumstances but are subject to approval from the Academic Registrar. You can change the order of your name(s) when you apply to graduate

The name on your testamur cannot contain all upper case letters, a title (e.g. Dr, Mr, Ms, etc.) or a comma. 

Date on your testamur

The date on your testamur is the date that your award was officially conferred by RMIT University. If you attend a graduation ceremony, your conferral date will be the date of the ceremony you attended. The conferral date is not the same as the date you completed your program of study.
