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.

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.

Why students may not appear in search options 2 and 3

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

Any date
With written consent from the student or graduate, request confirmation of qualifications or current enrolment.
