From May 2018, all HE and VET graduates will be provided with digital graduation documents as well as hard-copy documents.
Access to your free certified digital copies doesn't expire, and you'll be able to provide them instantly for employment or study applications.
You will receive an email containing a URL, with instructions on how to access the secure site. You can share this link with employers or other institutions as you choose.
If you graduated prior to May 2018 you can request a digital transcript via eQuals. This incurs a fee and you must submit an Academic document request via Electronic forms.
Secure digital storage access
My eQuals protects your credentials, guaranteeing the integrity and authenticity of your digital documents.
The underlying systems have been independently tested by security experts to ensure documents are authentic, tamper-evident and legally valid when viewed online.
All documents have digital signatures that meet the legal requirements of certified digital documents in countries around the world.
On request, you can provide access to your official CDU credentials through the My eQuals portal. This guarantees the document's authenticity as students and graduates can't upload or modify documents in My eQuals. Only accredited universities from Australia and New Zealand can issue documents through this platform.
Please note that digital transcripts do not show the grading system as the original hardcopies do, therefore we have provided the CDU Official Grading System here.
You can provide anyone with a link, directing them to your official documents. Recipients should check they are viewing the document through the My eQuals portal - the link should start with 'www.myequals.net'.
Certified documents viewed in Adobe Acrobat Reader have a blue ribbon above the document stating, Certified by Charles Darwin University… all signatures are valid. Documents that have been tampered with or modified show a red X and error message in the blue ribbon.
Recipients need to ensure they're viewing documents using the most recent version of Adobe Acrobat Reader (not their browser), while connected to the internet. Slow internet speed may limit Acrobat Reader's ability to verify the document's signature.
Digital documents can only be guaranteed when viewed online using Adobe Acrobat Reader. We can't verify a document's authenticity in printed format unless it's a certified hard copy issued directly by the University.
If you’d like to buy official, certified hard copies you can request this through the Academic document request via Electronic forms.
