The easiest way to order transcripts or study certificates is to order them via by choosing My Studies - Order an official certificate of study or transcript of records. You can also order the documents directly by clicking here. The ordered documents will be sent to you by secure e-mail the following workday (please check your spam folder if you have not received them!)

For a fee we also provide former students with various documents and certified copies of degree certificates. Please, contact the Student Affairs before you decide to visit us. This to make sure someone is here to provide you with the documents needed. You may not get the documents immediately which means that you may have to come back later to pick them up.

Only documents awarded by Arcada can be attested. We cannot attest documents awarded by other institutions. In addition, only copies that are taken by Arcada can be attested or certified. You may therefore bring only your original Degree Certificate. Copies you have taken yourself will not be attested or certified.

Translation of degree certificates

Arcada does not translate degree certificates. Please be in contact with an authorized translator in order for your documents to be translated. 

Certificates for alumni´s graduated from the educational instututions from which Arcada originates 

Arcada University of Applied Sciences was established in 1996 in Helsinki as a merger from the following educational institutions:

  • the Helsinki Swedish College of Nursing (Helsingfors svenska sjukvårdsinstitut)
  • the Swedish Commercial College (Svenska handelsläroverket)
  • the Swedish Institute of Technology (Tekniska Läroverket)
  • the Folkhälsan Institute of Social Education (Folkhälsans socialläroanstalt)

Please note that copies of Degree Certificates awarded by these institutions are not generated by Arcada UAS anymore. However, certificates regarding the graduation date are issued if the documentation in our archives is sufficient enough (according to the President's Decision 9/2015/P). You cannot receive fee-based documents before making and demonstrating payment of the requested document.

In addition, all documentation regarding Helsinki Swedish College of Nursing (including possible copies of Degree Certificates) are to be found in the National Archives Service of Finland (Kansallisarkisto).
