Letters

There are two types of letters available – Certification Letter (for Alumni) and Student Status Letter (for Current Students).

Certification Letters, which are official letters that certify a graduate’s status from the University, are available for students who have been conferred or awarded their degrees or graduate diplomas respectively.

Student Status Letters are official letters that verify an individual who is currently registered as an NUS student and will contain their current candidature information.

Note: Current students, including graduating students, are students who have not yet been conferred or awarded of their degrees or graduate diplomas respectively. Please refer to the Graduation website for information on conferment.

Certification Letters (for NUS Alumni only)

Certification Letters are typically issued with the following information:

  • name of graduate (at the point of conferment),
  • degree (with class of honours, if applicable),
  • major/specialization (if applicable)
  • conferment date, and
  • medium of instruction.

No, the University does not normally replace degree scrolls, nor reprint new degree scrolls or official transcripts if you have changed your name after you have been conferred or awarded your degree or graduate diploma respectively. Instead, a Certification Letter will be issued in lieu.
