Lost / Damaged Degree Scroll

Q1. Is it possible for me to obtain a replacement degree scroll if I have lost the original, or if the original has been somehow damaged?

No, it is not the University's policy to replace a lost/damaged degree scroll. However, we will be able to issue a letter of certification regarding your having been conferred a degree by the University. You will have to provide sufficient evidence (full name, NRIC or passport no., student registration no., degree awarded, conferment date, etc) for identification purposes for us to retrieve your records.
