How to confirm student qualifications
Depending the date of graduation, you have three options to confirm a Monash student's qualifications or their current enrolment.
Employers confirming qualifications
We strongly recommend employers use option 1 to confirm qualifications. This requires written consent from the student, as enrolment status and qualifications are not on the public record - unlike graduations, which are.
With permission from the student, our staff can run more comprehensive searches, including non-electronic records.
About the three search options
It's important to know that qualification/course completion is not the same as graduation.
A student can complete their course successfully but choose not to graduate. In this case they will not appear in search options 2 and 3.
1. Confirm a qualification or enrolment
With written consent from the student or graduate, request confirmation of qualifications or current enrolment.
2. Search for a Monash graduate
1980 – current
Search our graduate database. You'll need to know the graduates full name and date of birth or year of graduation.
3. Graduation ceremonies database
1963 – 2005
Search graduation ceremonies held by Monash University (1963 – 2005) and its amalgamation partners (ranging from 1968 – 1990).
Monash University provides these official documents in both hard copy and digital format:
- award certificate (testamur)
- academic record
- Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS).
There are a few ways to check the authenticity of a Monash graduate and their qualifications, depending on their format.
