Students and graduates can view, download and share their ANU academic documents online, at any time using a secure service provided by Digitary®. The academic documents available using this system are:
- academic transcripts
- Australian Higher Education Graduation Statements (AHEGS)
ANU is the first university in Australia to adopt this technology, and joins a growing list of international institutions already using the system including Cambridge University, The University of Manchester and the University of Kent.
Why provide certified documents online?
A single electronic copy of a document stored on a secure server avoids the need for multiple original or certified copies, saving time, inconvenience, paper and money.
Application processes are increasingly moving into the digital realm. Using the Digitary® system at ANU, you will be able to provide a hyperlink (URL) with any electronic application rather than attaching scanned documents or sending originals. The benefits are great when submitting multiple applications or overseas applications.
You can print a hardcopy of your electronic documents. Printed versions provide instructions on how to verify the document's authenticity electronically, avoiding the need to send an original or certified paper copy.
How secure is it?
Digitary® documents are issued using advanced electronic signatures which are compliant with EU Digital Signatures Directive 1999/93/EC and national enacting legislation. Digitary documents are both legally-valid and tamper-evident.
The Digitary® system leaves you in complete control over your electronic documents. Your documents can only be accessed by people you authorise. The simple online interface enables you to share your documents with as many or as few people as you like for as long as you like.
Who can take advantage of ANU digital certified documents?
Current students and alumni can purchase a digital certified copy of their transcript using their ISIS account.
Students graduating from July 2010 receive free access to ANU digital certified documents.
