Diplomas and transcripts


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. ​

In the spring of 2022, Nord University introduced digital diplomas to our graduating students. The diploma will be available in the Diploma Registry​

If you are an international student, you will receive a paper diploma. Read more under Paper Diplomas below. 

Information about the Diploma Registry

In the Diploma Registry,  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 registry, you can print and share your diploma. The service is free of charge.

Access to the Diploma Registry:
To gain access to the Diploma Registry, former students must have a Norwegian national identity number or D number. If you have a D number, you are advised to obtain an electronic ID, for example MinID.​

Results dating back in time:
Unfortunately, not all results are recorded in the registry. In that case, contact your educational institution and request a transcript of records or confirmation of your degree.

Paper Diplomas

If you move from Norway, you need to send an e-mail to exam@nord.no​​ with the address to which you want the diploma sent to. ​

What is the 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. 

All degree students at Nord University are issued a Diploma Supplement free of charge. The Diploma Supplement is available in the Diploma Registry, and is valid only in conjunction with the diploma. For those receiving a paper diploma, the DS will also will be sent with your diploma

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

Shown below are examples of Diploma Supplements from Nord University, as well as from the two university colleges and one university that in 2016 was established as Nord University.
