Application for a Replacement Testamur
Graduates from Monash University or from an institution that has amalgamated with Monash University may apply for a replacement testamur if their original testamur has been lost,
stolen or damaged. Graduates who have changed their name may also apply for a testamur to reflect their name change.
Lost or stolen
If your testamur has been lost or stolen a Statutory Declaration* affirming and detailing the loss or theft of the document must accompany the application form.
If you require a replacement testamur because your original testamur is damaged, we require evidence of the damaged testamur.
A replacement testamur cannot be issued if the original is still in your possession.
Change of name
If you have changed your name and wish to reflect this on your testamur we require evidence of your change of name. Accepted forms of proof include certified copies of birth certificate, marriage certificate, divorce degree, passport or change of name decree. You’ll also need to return your original testamur before a replacement can be issued. If additional information is required a team member will be in touch with you within five business days
The cost of a replacement testamur:
- for change of name $108
- if lost, stolen, damaged $324
The replacement testamur will be issued in the current format.
For a lost, stolen or damaged testamur the replacement testamur will have the words "This is a replacement degree" in the body of the text.
Testamurs requested for a change of name will have the words “This is to certify that” in the body of the text.
Both testamurs will include the original graduation date and the replacement date. Signatories to the replacement testamur may be different from those on the original testamur.
Graduates currently residing in countries that don't have Statutory Declarations in their legal system should prepare a statement that is witnessed and stamped/sealed by a notary public, or police officer, magistrate, solicitor or Australian Consulate official.
