Diploma certificate and DS

When will the diploma be issued
The degree is awarded when you meet the requirements of an approved education plan, in accordance to your study programme. Please check that your education plan is updated and approved. Contact your study advisor if you need to make any changes in your education plan. When you are awarded the degree, an electronic version of your diploma will be available in Vitnemålsportalen. 

The paper version of your diploma 
International students leaving Norway after completing their degree must contact the Department of Academic Affairs to order the paper version of the diploma. Please apply via the electronic form Application for Diploma.

For all other students, the paper version of the diploma will be sent to your address registered in the National Registry during September. Students who for other reasons need the paper version of the diploma before September must apply for the paper version via the electronic form Application for Diploma. You cannot apply for the diploma before you have received all your results and your education plan is approved.

Vitnemålsportalen (Diploma Registry)
Vitnemålsportalen (vitnemalsportalen.no) is a new digital service developed on behalf of Ministry of Education where former and current students can collect their results from Higher Education and share these with educational institutions, potential employers and other relevant parties. Vitnemålsportalen makes it easier to share your diploma and transcript of records when you are applying for jobs or further studies.

You can log in to Vitnemålsportalen using your ID-port (MinID, BankID on mobile, BankID, Buypass or Commfides) or Feide (Federal Identity Management in the educational sector). When you log in, the system will retrieve all your results directly from the institution’s database. Only you can log onto Vitnemålsportalen and view your results. A recipient can only see your results if you have given access. In Vitnemålsportalen you can generate a link which can easily be sent to selected recipients or you can save your results in a PDF file. You can choose what language you want the results to appear in (Bokmål Norwegian, Nynorsk Norwegian or English).

Which Language is the diploma issued in
The diploma certificates are issued in Norwegian, unless the program is entirely in English. 

Name of the recipient of a diploma from NMBU
The Department of Academic Affairs requests that you check on Studentweb to ensure that your name is correctly spelt in the system. The spelling of your name on StudentWeb will be reflected on your diploma. In order to rectify any typos, please contact the Student Information Centre (SiT). 

New diploma
The original certificate and Diploma Supplement are issued only once and you are thus requested to take good care of your documents. If necessary, the Department of Academic Affairs can provide you with a certified copy of the diploma, and in very special cases you may be issued a duplicate. 

If you find typos in the diploma, you will be issued a new certificate. If this is applies to you, please send a message to vitnemal@nmbu.no no later than one month after receiving the diploma. Please note that a new diploma will not be issued because of a change in your education plan or an improvement of grade in a subject included in the degree. A possible improvement of grade in a subject included in the degree will however, appear on a transcript of grades. 

The Department of Academic Affairs would like to wish you goodluck in your (current) last semester at NMBU.
