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

Your diploma is issued when you have completed a degree or vocational qualification. The diploma includes your transcript, with your grades and description of your course of study.

Diplomas for conferred degrees are valuable documents, which are issued once only. Take good care of your diplomas. In exceptional circumstances and upon application with grounds, duplicates may be issued. It will be charged a fee for the issuance of duplicate.

In cases where duplicate can not be issued, students can obtain a confirmation at the degree obtained together with a transcript of records.


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 Vitnemålsportalen. 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.
