Confirmations and verifications

In most cases where you need confirmation/verification, you can use your digital student ID or paper semester receipt, Diploma Registry, transcripts, diplomas or decision letter.

You already have confirmation/verification of the following:

  • That you are a student - the semester receipt confirms that you are a student this semester and that you have paid the semester fee.
  • Start and end of the semester - you will find the academic calendar on our website.
  • Leave of absence - this is confirmed in your decision letter.
  • The Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund will automatically be notified that you are registered as a student and which examinations you have taken.
  • From the Diploma Registry you can digitally share your results (subject, semester, credits and grades) with others. If you need the results on paper, you can order a transcript.
  • Degree - if you have received a diploma, you have confirmation of your degree.
