You can request a transcript of records when needed, whereas a Diploma is only issued once you have completed your programme of study.
Diploma for completed study programme
A diploma is issued to students who have completed and passed a study programme leading to a degree. As an attachement to the diploma, you will receive a Diploma Supplement. It is a description in English of the study programe/degree you have achieved and Norwegian education system.
From and including spring 2022, all students who have completed their study program and have a Norwegian birth number will receive their diploma and Diploma Supplement digitally. This means that you will no longer receive diplomas and Diploma Supplements on paper.
The digital diploma and Diploma Supplement will be available in the Diploma registry and Studentweb. You will receive an e-mail when the diploma is ready.
Some students will receive diploma on paper. This applies to students without a Norwegian national identity number, who do not have access to their digital diplomas in the Diploma registry (Vitnemålsportalen).
Before completing the degree, please check following information:
What is a digital diploma?
A digital diploma is a diploma in PDF with a digitally secured signature. The signature is an insurance against forgery and is valid as long as the document is unaltered.
You can easily share your higher education records with prospective employers and others from the Diploma registry.
Older results are missing in the Diploma registry
Some older results have not been digitally recorded. If you can't use the Diploma registry to share your results, you may request a copy of your diploma. If we can't provide a copy, you will give you a confirmation of the obtained degree. It is not possible to get a new "original" diploma.
This also applies to degrees completed before the merger of Oslo National Academy of the Arts in 1998.
Please be aware that such requests will take some time to process.
Please contact us at email@example.com. Send us your name, date of birth and name of study program and year when you have completed.
Your printed diploma will be sent to your semester adress registered in
. You can access Studentweb even after you have completed your studies at KHiO, but only if you have Norwegian identity number.
Your results will be available on Diploma registry before you'll receive the paper diploma by mail.
Have you lost your printed diploma?
If your printed diploma has been permanently lost, you can apply to have a duplicate of your diploma issued.
The documentation may include a police report if your diploma was stolen, confirmation from your insurance company in the event of theft or fire, or the remains of the diploma if it was destroyed.
If your application is granted, the Academy will issue a duplicate of your diploma. In some cases, technical or practical reasons prevent the issuing of duplicates, especially for old degrees. In these circumstances, the Academy can issue confirmation that the degree was obtained, together with a transcript.
