CQUniversity can verify an academic record if we have permission from the individual to do so. We require a signed consent from the individual before this private information can be released.  The consent document should include the student’s full name, date of birth and student ID number as well as their signature. Many employers and immigration agents have a standard form for this.

Please email the consent to our Student Governance Centre email sgc@cqu.edu.au or contact us on 13 2786.

Academic Verification usually takes 2-3 working days to process. This is a free service.
