Graduation Related Matters

NUS issues verifiable electronic (e-) degree scrolls/graduate diplomas and official transcripts, also known as OpenCerts, to the following cohorts:
  • First Degrees (Bachelor): those admitted from 2005 onwards
  • Higher Degrees (Graduate Diploma, Master and Doctoral): those admitted from 2004 onwards.

More information on OpenCerts can be found here. You may also refer to the Registrar's Office FAQs here

The University does not normally issue a replacement degree scroll if the original one is destroyed or misplaced. Instead, a letter certifying that the student is a graduate of the University will be issued. For information on certification letters, please click here
Students whose degrees/graduate diplomas were conferred/awarded from 31 March 2006 onwards have been issued e-degree scrolls and e-transcripts (in the form of an OpenCerts* data file), a copy of which is also deposited into the Skills Passport of their MySkills Future Account. Please refer to the Registrar's Office FAQs here for more information.

Students whose degrees/graduate diplomas were conferred/awarded before 31 March 2006, that is students who were not issued e-degree scrolls and e-transcripts, can use the Online Degree Verification Portal to verify the academic qualifications conferred/awarded by the University.

You may wish to refer to the Degree Verification website for more information.
