You can securely access digital versions of your certified transcripts and degree documents through My eQuals.

My eQuals is a shared platform used by universities across Australia and New Zealand. You can view and securely share digital versions of your documents with anyone, including employers and other universities.

Accessing digital documents

Academic transcripts

Higher Education (HE) students can now buy a digital version of their official academic transcript and share the link with anyone, including potential employers or other universities.

Please note that TAFE students cannot obtain new electronic documents via My eQuals due to technical issues. This service will be available again shortly. In the meantime, you can request hard copy transcripts for the same cost as digital versions, by completing the form.

Testamurs

From December 2017, all HE graduates will be provided with digital testamurs as well as hard-copy versions.

Past students

Lodge a request for digital academic transcripts using our Request for formal results statements and replacement testamur.

If you graduated prior to December 2017 you will still need to purchase hard-copy replacement testamurs - you can do so via the above form.

Secure digital storage & access

My eQuals protects your credentials, guaranteeing the integrity and authenticity of your digital documents.

The underlying systems have been independently tested by security experts to ensure documents are authentic, tamper-evident and legally valid when viewed online.

All documents have digital signatures that meet the legal requirements of certified digital documents in countries around the world.

On request, an HE student or graduate can provide access to their official VU credentials through the My eQuals portal. This guarantees the document's authenticity as students and graduates can't upload or modify documents in My eQuals. Only accredited universities from Australia and New Zealand can issue documents through this platform.

Digital graduation documents

All HE graduates will be provided with digital graduation documents when they graduate.

Other students can request digital academic transcripts via the Request for formal results statements and replacement testamur form.

You will receive an email containing a URL, with instructions on how to access the secure site. You can share this link with employers or other institutions as you choose.

Please note that TAFE students cannot obtain new electronic documents via My eQuals due to technical issues. This service will be available again shortly. In the meantime, you can request hard copy transcripts for the same cost as digital versions, by completing the form.

Verifying authenticity

Online

An HE student or graduate can provide anyone with a link, directing them to their official documents. Recipients should check they're viewing the document through the My eQuals portal - the link should start with https://myequals.edu.au.

PDF file

Certified documents viewed in Adobe Acrobat Reader have a blue ribbon above the document stating, Certified by Victoria University… all signatures are valid. Documents that have been tampered with or modified show a red X and error message in the blue ribbon. 

Recipients need to ensure they're viewing documents using the most recent version of Adobe Acrobat Reader (not their browser), while connected to the internet. Slow internet speed may limit Acrobat Reader's ability to verify the document's signature.

Printed

Digital documents can only be guaranteed when viewed online using Adobe Acrobat Reader. We can't verify a document's authenticity in printed format unless it's a certified hard copy issued directly by the University.

If you’d like to buy official, certified hard copies you can do so via the Request for formal results statements and replacement testamur form.
