Hard copy testamur fee waiver and refund

The $55 fee has been waived for all hard copy testamurs ordered by students who graduate in 2020. This decision has been made in recognition of the challenges faced by our students due to COVID-19 restrictions.

If you've already graduated in 2020 and paid for a hard copy testamur, you will be automatically refunded within 4 weeks from Monday 21 September 2020. 

If you've already graduated in 2020 but not yet ordered your hard copy testamur, you can now do so via this form

If you're graduating at the end of 2020, you'll be advised how to order your free hard copy testamur once you've graduated.

Delivery times: There may be a delay in delivery times due to disrupted DHL and Australia Post mailing services. For postage within Australia, we strongly recommend Express Post if your order is urgent. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
