Apply for your degree certificate

Once you have completed all your courses and all the final grades are reported by your lecturers into the student register LADOK, you need to apply for the degree certificate.

How to apply

You apply for the degree certificate in Ladok. If you have problems finding your degree in the list: limit the number of results searching by faculty (i.e. LTH) or by type of degree (i.e. Master). If you do not find your main field of study in the list: select 'other main fields of study' and specify in the next drop-down menu. If any credits are missing please contact the course coordinator.

The degree certificate is issued by the degree office at LTH (E-building, fifth floor) and it is free of charge. The degree office will handle all applications in turn and the handling time varies over the year depending on the number of applications received.

Courses exceeding the degree requirements will not be included in the degree. You can print a "Transcript of records" on the Student portal where the course will be included.
