To receive your parchment/testamur, regardless of whether you’ll be attending a graduation ceremony, you must respond to your invitation via SIMO.
The testamur on which your degree is printed will have your name and course as it appears on your Statement of Academic Record. You can view this in SIMO.
If you change your name, you must provide copies of relevant documentation (such as a marriage certificate or passport) to Student Hub, prior to responding to your Invitation to Graduate.
Change of name requests subsequent to responding to your graduation invitation must be directed to the Student Records Office immediately to ensure your testamur is not printed with your previous name. The graduation name can only be changed on the testamur prior to issue, as per the ECU Policy for Testamurs - Issue and Control.
A fee of $50 is applicable in some instances.
If it is the custom in your country to write your name in a different sequence, for example Chan, Ping Ping, and you wish your name to appear like this on your testamur, please amend your name order on your invitation response. If you don’t advise us of this change, we’ll print your testamur with your family name/surname last - Ping Ping Chan.
When responding to your invitation you will be asked for the correct pronunciation of your name. This is because when you are called to the stage to receive your degree during the ceremony, it may be by someone who doesn't know you.
Please provide the pronunciation of your full name as you would like it to be read. For example:
You must have responded to your Invitation to Graduate for your testamur to be ready for your collection.
Note: There’s an administrative charge for any testamur requests made more than 12 months after course completion.
Please phone us the day before you intend to collect your testamur to ensure it’s ready for collection from the Student Records Office. Photo ID is also required.
