When Should I Expect To Receive My Graduation Certificate?

If you completed your award before June 2023 we are aiming to ensure certificates are posted by the end of September.

If you completed your award during the summer of 2023, we are aiming to ensure certificates are posted by the end of October.*

*As of the 1st November, the majority of certificates have been printed and are being posted out as quickly as possible. We do apologise that may be some delays in receiving certificates which should be resolved in the coming weeks. We believe that all certificates should be posted by the end of November at the very latest.  

If you need your certificate urgently for a current job offer, visa application, further study deadline or any other critical issue and the electronic transcript you have already received is not sufficient, please contact alumni@lincoln.ac.uk where the team should be able to assist you. Please include your full name, student ID and details about your current deadline in the email. 

How Will I Receive My Graduation Certificate?

Your certificate and transcript will be posted to the permanent address which is recorded on your One Uni record. 

You must therefore ensure that these details are accurate ahead of us sending your certificate to ensure safe postage.

For UK students this will be via Royal Mail, for International/Overseas students this will be via DHL.

How Do I Update My Postal Address?

You can update your details in the “My Details” area of your One Uni account here. Please do so by the 1st September 2023.

Please ensure that your permanent address, email address and phone number are up to date.

If your address details are incorrect at the point of posting, and your certificate is returned to us, there may be a charge for redelivery to your new address.

Who Do I Contact if I Haven’t Received My Graduation Certificate?

If you completed your studies in the 2022/2023 academic year and do not receive your certificate by the end of October 2023, please email certificates@lincoln.ac.uk.

If you completed your studies in a previous academic year and require replacement documentation, you should visit our website for more information.

What To Do if I Need My Certificate Before It Is Scheduled To Arrive?

If you completed your course within the last 3 months and have access to your OneUni account, please submit an online letter request through the ‘Support’ section of your account (Student Support Letter Requests). If you no longer have access to OneUni, or you completed you course prior to this academic year, please complete the request form.

How Do I Get a Reference?
