Degree Scrolls and Transcripts


If you have officially/legally changed your name during your course of study, this name will thus be reflected on all official NUS documents such as the degree scroll and official academic transcript.

Please ensure you inform the University of this change as soon as possible and before you are conferred your degree. Please click here for more details on verification of official name change.


E-Degree Scrolls and e-Transcripts

NUS is now issuing electronic (e-) degree scrolls and transcripts to our students through the secured OpenCerts platform based on blockchain technology, as part of the government’s Smart Nation initiative.

These e-documents will facilitate mobility as graduates may share them with potential employers, universities or other parties, who may access and validate them at their own time and convenience.

Your e-degree scroll and e-transcript will be sent to your NUS lifelong email account latest by end July 2020.


Hard copy Degree Scrolls and Transcripts

Hard copy degree scrolls and transcripts are usually distributed during the ceremonies. As the Commencement ceremonies are postponed this year, graduates may collect their degree scrolls and transcripts as follows:


- By Post

You may request for the degree scroll and transcript to be mailed to you. Postage fees will be waived for graduates who select this option by 31 July 2020.

After 31 July 2020, you may request for the scroll to be mailed to you at a fee.


- Self-Collection at Registrar’s Office

You may collect your degree scroll and transcript personally or authorize a proxy to collect on your behalf at the Registrar’s Office. Collection is from 1 September to 30 November 2020 by appointment only. More details will be announced in due course.

Please indicate your preferred mode of collection when you register your attendance via myEduRec by 31 July 2020. Uncollected degree scrolls and transcripts will be issued at Commencement 2020 in January 2021.
