Degree Scrolls

Students who have completed all degree requirements and have been conferred their degrees will be issued degree scrolls.

For All Graduated Students except Class of 2020

(i.e. Class of 2020 refer to students whose degrees were conferred from 31 July 2019 to 30 June 2020 only):

 


You will be normally issued your degree scroll(s) and complimentary official academic transcript(s) during the annual Commencement ceremonies in July. Commencement each year is meant for students who have completed their studies, and been conferred their degrees between 1 July of the preceding calendar year and 30 June of the current calendar year, both dates inclusive:

  • If you are not attending the ceremony, you may collect your degree scroll and complimentary transcript from the Registrar's Office from 2.00pm on the working day immediately after the last day of commencement ceremonies onwards.
  • Alternatively, you may also collect your degree scrolls and official transcripts earlier, according to your conferment date (please refer to Graduation for conferment periods). You may still attend Commencement ceremonies if you collected the documents earlier. Please refer to the collection schedule below.

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

Note: Over-the-counter collection of degree scroll is still currently unavailable. You may however, request for the scroll to be mailed to you (see ‘How can I collect my Degree Scroll’ tab for more details).
