Standard verification requests
The Graduations Office will respond to requests to verify graduates of award programs, not professional development courses. If you have completed a professional development course, please consider purchasing a print Official Academic Transcript with Authentication.
The University of Southern Queensland does not have the power to investigate allegations of false claims of qualifications made in the wider community. In many situations, the most appropriate body to investigate is the body that has received the claim, or the professional regulator. Allegations of serious fraud should be reported to the Queensland Police Service who'll investigate the matter and may approach USQ for relevant information.
