A student may not request a diploma any earlier than the scheduled date of graduation. The request must be completed online http://registrar.aud.edu/
prior to the end of the student’s final semester. Failure to complete the application online by the specified date may result in either a delay in receiving the diploma or an additional charge.
Diplomas are available for personal pick-up by students at the Registrar’s Office. A student who prefers an alternative for collecting or receiving his or her diploma should consult the Registrar’s Office. (For purposes of graduation verification, the university can provide a letter [stamped] to the student until their diploma is issued.)
Names on Diplomas
The name that appears on a student’s diploma will be consistent with the name that appears in the student’s file upon admission and is corroborated by a passport or identity card.
If an original AUD diploma is destroyed or lost, a duplicate may be ordered from the Registrar’s Office. The Duplicate Diploma Request Form
must be filled by the graduate; and any evidence that the original diploma was lost, stolen or destroyed must be attached to the Request Form
(e.g., police report, fire department report). If the original diploma is damaged, the Duplicate Diploma Request Form
must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office with the damaged diploma attached. The reverse side of the duplicate diploma will be stamped with the words, “Duplicate issued on MM/DD/YY to replace lost/destroyed original diploma.” In order to receive this duplicate, graduates must fill a Diploma Request Form
, available online www.aud.edu/Registrar/forms.asp
and pay the university’s diploma fee.
Attestation of Diplomas
The Office of the Registrar is responsible for processing the issuance of all diplomas and transcripts for attestation by the U.A.E. Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. Obtaining the actual attestation is the student’s responsibility.
