Unfortunately, degree certificates cannot be released prior to the graduation ceremony date.
In the case of requests for the early release of degree certificates for the purpose of emigration applications, professional registrations, overseas employment, etc., students may request that they be issued with an official statement and/or a letter of completion – at a minimal cost.
The official statement includes the graduand's name, student number, conferral date and programme details. An official statement can be arranged through your faculty. A letter of completion states that a student has successfully completed all the requirements of his/her programme and is eligible to graduate at the next round of ceremonies.
