How do I get a replacement of my academic transcript?

Replacement of Academic Transcripts (on official Transcript paper), Graduation Statements, or True Copies of your Award can be ordered in person or by phone from Student Service Centre in Student Central on Bentley campus.

If you graduated after 2010, you may request your replacement Academic Transcript via the Official Document Requests link under the Quickforms channel in your OASIS account. The document fees webpage covers details on the cost of ordering these documents.

Additional information can also be found on the Graduations website.

How can I get my award verified?

For Curtin awards granted post-1992, please visit Curtin’s award verification service.

For Curtin awards granted pre-1992, or if you are unable to verify the award on the link above, please submit an online request.

For further assistance with award verification, contact the Graduations website.

Can I keep my Curtin email address after I graduate?

If you graduated after 2010, your Curtin email address will automatically receive a graduate 'alias' which will enable you to keep using the account. For example joe.bloggs@student.curtin.edu.au will become joe.bloggs@graduate.curtin.edu.au.

How do I register for an Alumni Library Membership?

You must be a Curtin University alumnus or former staff member to access the Alumni Library Membership. For more information about the Alumni Library Membership, click here.

Why do I have limited access to online journals and databases through the Alumni Library Membership?

This is due to strict licensing contracts with the vendors who provide access to the Library's databases.

Alumni & Community Relations and the Curtin Library have very limited control over what online journals and databases are made available to alumni and former staff.

Curtin Library works with database vendors to attempt to negotiate licensing agreements that include access for alumni and former staff. The databases where this has been agreed, such as Proquest, are made available to alumni and former staff.

How do I abbreviate my Curtin degree?

Curtin degree abbreviations - or post-nominals - can be found in the online Courses Handbook. Simply search your degree and click on your degree title. The abbreviation is shown immediately under the title inside your course handbook.

E.g. Bachelor of Arts is BA(Curtin). Master of Commerce is MCom(Curtin).

More information on post-nominals can be found on page 17 of the Awards and Graduation Manual.
