Diploma Supplement

The Diploma Supplement is a standardized document and is complementary to the original degree certificate. Its primary objective is to promote international transparency, thus facilitating mobility and employability at the national and international level. It also serves to recognize, using a simplified decision process, academic and professional qualifications earned.


1. The Diploma Supplement is merely informative and is not a substitute for the diploma nor does it constitute proof of the degree to which it refers.

2. Diploma Supplements are only issued with diplomas for degree programs under the Bologna process.

3. The Diploma Supplement issued by UC, is electronic: as a PDF file and can be authenticated via the Web using an alphanumeric code.

How do I request the Diploma Supplement ?

  1. It is automatically issued with the diploma (certificate of completion) and cannot be requested separately.
  2. The supplement is delivered electronically in digital format, through Inforestud@nte.

Items than can be included on the Diploma Supplement:
