3. Testamurs (degree certificates)

Testamurs are issued either at your graduation ceremony, or in absentia.

If you choose not to attend your graduation ceremony, your documents will be posted to the address you have entered into mySI-net.

If your address in mySI-net is out of date, there will be a delay and cost to provide you with replacements.

Documents are mailed in August (mid-year ceremonies), or January (end-of-year ceremonies).

Order online

The online ordering system can be used for both paper and electronic testamurs.

Electronic testamur

If you graduated between 2010 and July 2017, you can purchase an electronic My eQuals testamur.

The cost of an electronic testamur is $50.

Replacement paper testamur

To protect against the fraudulent use of testamurs, we don't reissue paper certificates except when the original has been permanently lost, damaged or destroyed.

If you have changed your name, you can also apply to update your testamur – but you have to return the original.

The cost of a new paper testamur is $120 and it will be issued in the current style. To order a replacement certificate:

  1. Complete the Request for Replacement Paper Testamur form (PDF, 132.6 KB)
  2. Complete the statutory declaration on the form
  3. Upload your documents to the academic records portal and pay $120.

On your form, please ensure you state:

  • why you are requesting a replacement testamur (i.e. name change, or why the original certificate was lost or destroyed), and
  • your full name when the degree was awarded.

If you cannot state with absolute certainty that your degree has been permanently lost or destroyed, please write:

"Should the original testamur issued to me by The University of Queensland be returned to my possession, I will return the replacement to the University".
