Supplement to Diploma?

The supplement to diploma is, as its name indicates, an annex to the certificate of completion, currently known as diploma, and in order to obtain it you need to request a certificate of completion according to the guidelines in "How do I obtain a Certificate or Diploma?"

At UC, this document is certified digitally, by downloading the form in PDF (Portable Document Format) from Inforestud@nte.

This option is one of the features of UC's academic information system, NONIO, which was introduced with the fifth SIMPLEX Program: SIMPLEX '10, whose measures are organized by life events where the interaction between citizens and the government can be simplified. NONIO is part of measure "M023 - PERMANENT HIGHER EDUCATION QUALIFICATIONS CERTIFICATE".

This measure aims to help students obtain an electronic copy of their Certificate of Completion and the Supplement to Diploma, under the terms of articles 38 to 42 of Executive Order no. 42/2005 of 22 February.

This option is currently available to students with an Inforestud@nte account and who have completed a degree under Bologna.

Please remember that:

  1. The cost varies for each document and can be found on the schedule of fees.
  2. Your request will only be sent after payment of respective fees.
  3. Payment can be made at the finance office of any one of the assistance centers (in cash, check or bank card), or by using the bank reference detail provided by SGA.
  4. Only requests that include Student's Full Name, Type and number of ID , Student Number and Program will be accepted.

As requests can be submitted through various means, requests are often submitted multiple times, making it more difficult to process the requests in a timely manner and delays the resolution.  We ask for your understanding to avoid the repetition of requests. Thank You.
