Upon finishing your Master’s thesis your final grade will be displayed in your Transcript of Records as soon as the Central Examination Office received all of your grades.
It will take up to 2 months before the physical degree documents are printed, stamped and signed. If you need an official proof of graduation or have any other general questions, you can request the Preliminary Certificate at the Central Examination Office.
Attention: Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic it may take a longer time before your degree documents are finished. Please remain patient!
As soon as the documents are prepared, the Central Examination office transfers them to the RWTH International Academy.
