Graduation Matters


Following the lifting of the circuit breaker in Singapore, NTU will reopen its campus services and facilities gradually in line with the guidelines advised by the Government.

For the Class of 2020 Graduates, the collection of degree certificates and official transcripts is scheduled for end July/early August. Details of the collection will be provided nearer the date. 

Note: For graduates who were conferred between March 2020 to May 2020, you may collect your degree certificate and official transcripts from One Stop from end June. You will be notified via email once the documents are ready for collection.

Please check back later for further updates. We seek your patience and understanding for any inconvenience caused during this unprecedented period.

For any enquiries, please email the Office of Academic Services at (for undergraduate programmes) and (for graduate programmes).


The completion of studies for a Bachelor degree in NTU marks a major milestone for graduands and calls for celebration.  Graduands’ status is reflected in their final semester examination results slip, available upon release of examination results.

Degree Conferment

Degrees are conferred by the Chancellor of NTU.  For undergraduate students who have met graduation requirements for their Bachelor degree, conferment of degrees would be on 31 January after Semester 1, 30 June after Semester 2, 15 July after Special Term I and 31 August after Special Term II. Students who are able to graduate with exchange credit transfer or internship may be conferred on 31 March or 31 October or any of the dates above.


Degree Certificate and Official Transcript

The degree certificate and official transcript are issued to graduates after their degrees have been conferred. For students graduating in Semester 2, the degree certificate and official transcript will be issued to them at Convocation. For students graduating in Semester 1 or Special Term I/II or who did not attend the Convocation, a notification will be sent to their NTU email account when the degree certificate and/or official transcript are ready for collection. Graduates who are unable to collect the degree certificate and/or official transcript personally may authorise someone else to collect on their behalf or request for the certificate and/or transcript to be mailed to them.

Note: SingPost has suspended international mail delivery to some countries till further notice. You may check the list here: International Service Suspension due to Covid-19 by SingPost. We will not be able to mail the degree certificate and official transcript to affected countries until the suspension is lifted by SingPost.



Students who are in their final semester of study are reminded to submit changes to their particulars (specifically name, citizenship, NRIC, passport number, or marital status) and the supporting documents prior to the release of results of their final examinations. After the final results have been released, the particulars that are in the University's records will be frozen and will be used for the printing of the final transcripts and degree certificates.


Digital Certificate 

Graduates from Class of 2019 onwards will be issued their digital degree certificate on OpenCerts after the issuance of the hardcopy degree certificates. More information can be found on the Digital Certificate webpage.



The annual NTU Convocation event is in end July each year.  Details for the current year Convocation are normally updated by early May at this link
