If the testamur you were issued with upon graduation is lost, missing, destroyed, stolen or damaged, you may apply for a replacement using the Replacement Testamur Application Form.
If you have changed your name since graduation or your name is incorrect, you may apply to have your testamur re-issued under your current name, if desired. You must contact Flinders Connect via email firstname.lastname@example.org first to update your name prior to submitting the application form. If the original testamur is still in possession, this must be surrendered to Graduation Services with the application (the statutory declaration is not required when surrendering the original testamur).
The original hardcopy application for a replacement testamur should be returned to Graduation Services
via mail to:
Graduation Services, Flinders University
GPO Box 2100, Adelaide SA 5001
or in person to
Flinders Connect (Student Hub, on Level 0 of the Central Library building at the Bedford Park campus).
Re-issued testamurs will be printed on the current year’s testamur paper with the current Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor’s signatures and may not be the same as your original document.
To request a replacement testamur the University requires you to submit a statutory declaration stating that the degree has been lost, stolen or destroyed and that you require a replacement copy. The statutory declaration needs to be witnessed by a Justice of the Peace or other public notary. A statutory declaration and list of suitable witnesses can be found attached to the application form, and should be returned at the same time. The original document must be returned. Scanned or photocopied versions of the form will not be accepted.
There is a A$50 replacement fee (plus additional postage, if applicable). Your replacement testamur can be posted to you (fees apply) or be available to be collected from Flinders Connect. Payments can be made by cheque, money order or credit card. Cheques and money orders must be made out to Flinders University. Credit card payments can be made online via Flinders Online Payment.
Replacement testamurs can usually be reprinted within 2 working days of our office receiving your statutory declaration and application form. For further information please contact Flinders Connect.
