Requesting for a degree certificate doesn't have to be after graduation hustle. Some institutions have the policies of issuing certificates to graduates before the final days on campus.

For one reason or the other, you may not be lucky to attend such institutions. Or you may be out of luck to get yours the same day others were collecting theirs. If you fall here, kindly see the guide below to collect yours.

The administration department of a university is assigned the duty of issues certificates. They should have all the graduates’ certificates with them years after their convocation.

Every institution has her way of issuing certificates to her graduates. In most cases, universities follow the same standard of issuing the cert before your convocation or after.

With this question, it may mean you're done in school for some years and yet to get your own evidence of completion.

Follow this guide to get your certificate from the university, polytechnic or college of education.
  1. Visit your school’s portal or website
  2. Search for any link for certificates request
  3. Follow the prescribed in as detailed on the page.
  4. Where the online request is not available, consider looking for your school supports/helpline and demand how to go about it.

If all the above failed, Visit the school personally or send a proxy to ask for the procedures to collect the certificate. The most important thing to consider is the time requirements and cost implication. Some people have spent a week or more around the campus before they get out of the hurdle.

However, most schools require your personal presence to issue your certificate though except they have the policy of posting it to your address.

Wishing you luck.
