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

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