Deadline for Collection

It is the University's policy to retain award certificates for collection up to 31 December of the following year after graduation (e.g. for 2022 graduates, the deadline for collection is 31 December 2023).  After that date, all uncollected award certificates will be confidentially disposed without any further notice.

If you wish to get an award certificate afterwards, you will need to apply for a replacement award certificate with a fee at the prevailing rate (currently HK$400).



The University has also launched a newly developed e-Certification to support verification of qualification for graduates. It is a web-based system enabling employers, employment agencies and educational institutions to verify electronically the academic award(s) obtained by a professional doctorate / master's / bachelor’s / associate degree holder (for Class of 2014 onwards). By using the system, you can generate and share a secured, direct CityU URL, at your discretion, to a third party for verification of your award(s) details. The information is encrypted with an access code provided by you to the designated viewer(s) to ensure confidentiality. To access the system, please login to AIMS (Student Record/Alumni Services > e-Certification for Graduates).
