Degree Scrolls and Academic Transcripts

Degree scrolls will be available for collection according to the schedule tabulated below. If you have completed all degree requirements and are conferred a degree, you will be issued your degree scroll with a complimentary copy of your complete academic transcript. (Note: The practice of issuing a complimentary transcript together with the degree scroll took effect from the graduating cohort of 2007, i.e. graduates with degree conferment dates on or after 1 July 2006).

The University does not normally issue a replacement degree scroll if the original one is destroyed or misplaced. Instead, a certification letter will be issued and to request for this letter, please write to transcript@nus.edu.sg with the following details.

  • A copy of your NRIC or Passport for verification of records; and
  • Mailing address (a soft-copy will also be provided).

If you need additional copies of your transcript, do note that transcripts are only available upon request by the student/graduate concerned. Applications and payments for transcripts should be made online at the Transcripts & Records website.

Your degree scroll and academic transcript will be withheld if there is a “Hold” on your record. You can log in to the NUS Education Records System to check for any “Hold(s)” and contact the relevant office to work out the necessary rectification.
