Alumni Document Orders

Welcome to the Alumni Document Orders

This system will allow you to order and, where applicable, pay for the documents you require.

Your Academic Transcript

Access to Digital Award Documents

Students who registered on their course for the first time after September 2014 can access their full academic record and transcript available via their HEAR These are electronically accessible for life. You can share a digital version of your HEAR with employers and other universities, providing them with a University-certified record of your achievements. Further information about the HEAR

Fully certified electronic Award Certificates are also now available for these students, alongside the HEAR. However, students with a HEAR that graduated before September 2019 will need to contact award-docs@essex.ac.uk to request an electronic Award Certificate upload. Any students who graduated from September 2019 onwards will have this automatically uploaded.

Students without access to a HEAR, such as students who studied with us before September 2014, can still order an academic transcript.

Important Notes

Please note, the Royal Mail has announced a number of planned strike dates over the coming weeks which are likely to have an impact on how long it will take for your order to arrive. We will endeavour to ensure your order arrives in a timely manner, however, we do thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.

New Students

New students are not permitted to order documents from this site before they are registered. If you are a new student to the university you must register on your course before you can order any documents with regards to your status as a student. Please read the published information with regards to registration if you have not already done so. If you are not registered, and you place an order through this system, you will not be given your documents.

Documentation for more than one course

You can only place an order for one course or award at a time. If you require documentation for more than one course or award you will need to complete a separate online order for each.

Awards from Partner Institutions

If you are a graduate from a UK Partner Institution or college you may use this service to request replacement Award Certificates only. All other documents, including transcripts, should be obtained from your institution directly. If you have any queries, please contact partnerships@essex.ac.uk.

Current Students

Current students should visit the 'Getting Documents' page for more information about how to access your documents through GradIntel


If you place an order and then wish to cancel it please contact the Graduation and Awards Team at alumdoc-orders@essex.ac.uk
