Replacing your testamur

Replacement testamurs are usually requested for the following reasons:

  • a change of name is required on the testamur
  • original testamur is damaged or you require your DDIAE/UCSQ testamur to be re-issued by USQ
  • original testamur is lost.

Name changes

You can request that your names changed on the university enrolment records, and as a result this change will be printed on the testamur. Students wishing to change their name should:

  1. Complete and submit by mail the Change of name form (DOC 196KB) and Replacement Testamur Request Form (DOC198KB) along with supporting certified documentation
  2. Forward the completed change of name form, supporting documentation and original testamur together with payment of AUD60 to:

Please note that if certified documentary evidence is not supplied, any name change request will not be processed. All names on testamurs will appear in English and titles such as Mr or Dr are not recorded on testamurs.
