Notarizing university documents / duplicates

Graduates can authenticate the diploma or certificate obtained from Worms University of Applied Sciences at the examination office for a fee. The authenticity of the documents will be confirmed.

Degree certificates:

  • Graduates must make a copy of the original document.
  • The copies and the original must be submitted during business hours of the examination office for notarization. 

Report certificate:

  • Graduates must make a copy of the original document.
  • The DIN A3 certificate must be copied on four DIN A4 formatted pages (do not staple).
  • The copies and the original must be submitted during business hours of the examination office for notarization.

Should the student no longer reside in Worms, official notarizations of the documents are also available at each municipal administration or city hall. You do not need to come to the university for notarization.

Signature of the examination office on the transcripts:
The transcripts that students can print out themselves in the LSF portal are valid without a signature. In rare cases, however, a signature is required. In this case, please print out the transcript in the LSF portal yourself and submit it during business hours to the examination office for a signature.

Duplicates of diplomas or report certificates

Graduates can receive so-called duplicates in case of loss or destruction of a university diploma or report certificate. The seal confirms that the duplicate matches the document issued by the university.

To apply, please send an e-mail to the examination office with the following information:
Name, date of birth, contact data
degree, study programme, matriculation number (if available)
required document

Issuance of duplicates is subject to a fee. After applying, a payment request with the bank data of the university and instructions on how to proceed will be sent to you.
