Third Party Verification of USQ graduates

My eQuals 

USQ graduates can share their certified digital graduation documents faster by supplying third parties seeking verification access via an electronic link and (optional) pin. More information about My eQuals shared documents for third parties and My eQuals.

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. 

To use the Third Party Verification service, third parties must provide the following graduate information:

  • full name including any previous or maiden names, or variations of name order
  • date of birth in this format DD/MM/YYYY 
  • name/s of academic program/s to be verified
  • detail of the company, service, organisation or individual requesting the verification.
 
USQ responds to Third Party Verification requests in writing via email. These requests and responses are retained and stored in accordance with our Privacy Policy under which only the following information can be provided about a conferred graduate to a third party:
  • name of academic program/s completed (not including majors or specializations)
  • conferral date/s.
