TRANSCRIPTS AND PARCHMENTS
An academic transcript is the formal and complete record of your results and qualification gained at NorthTec. You will receive your final academic transcript when you complete your qualification and the cost is included in your course fees. Most students will receive this at graduation.
You can request an additional or replacement of your academic transcript at any time prior to or after graduation. This will be a complete record of all your confirmed results up to the date of the request. There is a $25.00 charge for this additional or replacement official polytechnic document.
The request for an additional or replacement academic transcript may be made:
By phone: Call NorthTec Registry on 0800 808 856. You will need to provide your student ID number, full name and date of birth. Following payment, your transcript will be mailed to you.
By email: Email your full name, student ID number, date of birth and credit card details to Registry@northtec.ac.nz. Your transcript will be mailed to you.
In person: Visit the Registry desk at NorthTec Raumanga Campus with your student ID number, make your payment and your transcript can either be mailed to you or you will be notified when it is ready for collection. There is a maximum of 5 working days turnaround time.
Please note: if you have outstanding fees or charges owing to the NorthTec, you will not receive your transcript or your award until these have been paid.
When you graduate you will receive a certificate to demonstrate your completion in the qualification. You will receive your award in person if you attend graduation, or it will be posted to you if you graduate “in absentia”. It is very important that you supply Registry with your correct current postal address.
To replace an award you need to complete an Application for Award Replacement (form reference R034). Contact Registry@northtec.ac.nz or the application form which details the process and costs involved.
