Award Verification Service

The Western Sydney University Award Verification Service is a database containing basic information about past graduates. The database displays award titles, conferral dates and names.

A $55 processing fee will apply if the company/person requires additional information to what is listed on the AVS system (the student's conferral name, award and conferral date). An example of this may be requiring the Graduations Team to complete a form or verify details in an academic document are correct as per our student record system and the student record. This fee is payable via OneStop, please select 'Student Experience Office', 'Payments', then  'Award Verification Service (additional information required)'.

If you are unable to find a graduate using this service please submit an enquiry to the Graduation Team.
