You’re given a parchment when you graduate from your course. You can request a replacement parchment if:

  • your hardcopy parchment is lost or damaged
  • you’ve changed your name.

You can also request a digital parchment if you graduated before September 2019.

My original hardcopy parchment has been lost or damaged in the post

If your parchment doesn't arrive within a month of your graduation or conferral date, or is damaged in the post, let us know through AskQUT so that we can issue you a replacement.

If you graduated more than two months ago, you'll need to apply for a replacement.

My original hardcopy parchment was issued by another institution

If you’ve lost your parchment and it was issued by one of QUT's predecessor institutions (such as QIT, BCAE), after you apply for a replacement, we’ll issue you a substitute parchment with an appropriate endorsement identifying the original institution.

I've changed my name

You can apply for a replacement parchment if you’ve changed your name. You’ll need to return your original hardcopy parchment and provide certified copies of either your marriage certificate, birth certificate, or deed poll along with a change to personal details (D form)(PDF file, 200.8 KB).

I'd like a digital parchment

You receive a free digital parchment through My eQuals if you graduate from September 2019 onwards. If you graduated earlier you can request a digital parchment through our Replacement Parchment form.

You'll have lifetime access to your digital parchment.
