You must apply for the degree certificate yourself and you can send in your application once you have finished your studies. A degree certificate is a verification that you, through your studies, have acquired knowledge and abilities up to a certain level.
You apply for your degree certificate at the university where you completed the last course of your education. Your application will be assessed against the applicable national and local graduation rules.
At University of Gävle, you apply via "My Studies" at the Student Portal.
Only courses with a final grade, that is finished courses in Ladok, may be included in the degree certificate issued by the University of Gävle.
Please do not apply for a degree certificate until you have verified that all the courses that you intend to include in the degree certificate have been reported as finished courses in Ladok. If you apply for a degree certificate before all courses are completed and reported in Ladok, your application will, most likely, be dismissed.
According to the most recent graduate regulations each exam must consist of exactly the number of credits stipulated, that is, neither more nor fewer credits than allowed.
If you, in your application, have specified courses that cover more credits than the maximum credits allowed, the University of Gävle will exclude course(s) to correspond to the maximum credits allowed.
