Graduation Matters

 

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.​

Degree Conferment

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.

The degree certificate and official transcript are issued to graduates after their degrees have been conferred. Please refer to the table below for details on the collection mode and timeline for the respective conferment.

​Important

The name printed on the official graduation documents shall follow the name reflected in the official identification document, i.e. NRIC or Passport. Students who are in their final semester of study are reminded to submit changes to their particulars, if any (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 degree certificates and final transcripts.
