Diplomas and transcripts


Take care of your original diploma, it will be issued only once!

Diplomas are issued to students who complete a degree or vocational training programme. Diplomas contain the student’s grades and a description of the study programme. 

If the student improves a grade in a course that is included in the basis for the diploma, it will be documented by a separate grade transcript in accordance with Section 12-1, (4) of the Regulations relating to Studies and Examinations at Nord University 

Elective bachelor

If you meet the requirements of the Regulations for Studies and Examinations at Nord University § 2-3 (1c), you may apply for the conferral of an elective bachelor degree.

Applications are approved on the basis of completed courses.

For advice regarding which programmes and/or courses are suited to an elective bachelor degree, contact the relevant study advisor.

Diploma Portal

In the Diploma Portal,  you will find your results achieved at higher education institutions in Norway. Here you can share your results digitally with other educational institutions, potential employers and other parties. From the portal, you can print and share your diploma before you receive the paper version by post. The service is free of charge.

Unfortunately, there are certain results before 1995 that are missing from the portal. You must then contact your educational institution and request a grade transcript or confirmation of your degree.

Diploma supplement

A Diploma Supplement (DS) is a supplement in English that is issued along with your diploma. This gives information about the student's education and Norway’s education system. The Diploma Supplement is valid only in conjunction with the diploma. The Diploma Supplement is also available in the Diploma Portal. 

Read more about the Diploma Supplement on the website of the Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education (NOKUT).


In your diploma is lost or damaged, you may in special cases apply for the issuance of a duplicate diploma, cf. Section 12-1 (5) of the Regulations relating to Studies and Examinations at Nord University. The diploma will be marked as a duplicate. 

Documentation of the loss or damage is required, e.g. copy of the police report if it has been stolen, or confirmation from the insurance company in the event of fire or water damage. The student will be required to pay a replacement fee. 

In cases where duplicates cannot be granted, students may obtain a confirmation of their degree along with a grade transcript. See otherwise the Diploma Portal, where degrees that have been earned are confirmed electronically.

Transcript of grades

A transcript is an overview of achieved results that do not lead or have led to a degree or vocational education. The transcript does not contain a description of the course of study, but includes an overview of courses passed and grades awarded.

If you require a transcript during or after the course of your studies, you may order it in Studentweb or Diploma Registry. In Studentweb: Click on "Orders" in the top menu. Once the order has been made, it will take a few minutes for the transcript to appear under "Documents." The transcript of records is electronically signed.
