An official academic record (Certificate/Testamur) is the official record of your James Cook University (JCU) enrolment.
If you have graduated, it will also include the date your award was conferred.
Academic Records are produced according to your current academic status.
If you want them to appear on your record, check that your results have been released or your graduation has been conferred before submitting your application.

There are different processing times for academic records, depending on when you commenced your studies:

|Prior to 1990||Up to 10 working days|
Note: some records may require additional processing that can take extra time, you will be notified if this is the case when you make your request.
Official academic records are printed on blue JCU security paper without alterations or erasures and are certified by the University Registrar. When photocopied or electronically scanned, the word ‘COPY’ appears prominently across the front of the document.
The micro-printing security line, which reads ‘James Cook University’ under magnification, is not legible on a copy.
You can obtain an unofficial academic record (listing your subjects and grades) via eStudent:
Your unofficial academic record will be sent to your JCU email account.
Note: students no longer studying at JCU who do not have an active ‘my.jcu’ email address or access to eStudent will need to apply for an official Academic Record.
Level of eStudent access information is available on our website - Student Information Access Policy.
