The completion of studies for a 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.
Degrees are conferred by the Chancellor of NTU. For undergraduate students who have met graduation requirements for their Bachelor's 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. For graduate students who have met graduation requirements for their Master's Degree, PhD Degree, and Graduate Diploma, the degrees are conferred at the end of every month. The conferment process may take up to 2 months.
While degree conferment is pending, students may request for a Letter of Certification via the One Stop @ SAC portal.
Degree Certificate and Official Transcript
The degree certificate and official transcript are issued to graduates after their degrees have been conferred. These documents are issued at Convocation for students graduating between May and mid-July. For students graduating in other periods (end July to April) or who are unable to attend Convocation, the documents will be available for collection at One Stop @ SAC two weeks after the degree conferment date or three working days after the end of Convocation respectively. Graduates will be notified via their NTU email account once the documents are ready for collection.
Graduates who are unable to collect the degree certificate and/or official transcript personally may authorise a proxy to collect on their behalf. To opt for mailing of degree certificate and/or official transcripts, please complete and submit the form:
- Mailing request for Bachelor's Degree

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.
The degree certificate and official transcript will be withheld from graduates with outstanding fees until full payment has been made and final thesis has been submitted.
Digital Certificate and Transcript
Graduates will receive an eTranscript which is digitally signed and certified by NTU. Once the document is ready for retrieval, an email notification with the instructions will be sent to their NTU email account.
In addition, a digital degree certificate and official transcript in OpenCerts format will be issued to graduates who are graduating from Year 2014 onwards. Graduates will receive a separate email notification together with the OpenCerts document via their NTU email account once it is ready.
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.
