Enrolment/registration certificates, student cards or credit certificates, these are just some of the certificates you need as a student. Don't know what exactly you are looking for? Below you will find an overview of all the certificates.
Student card and registration certificate
Once you're fully (re)-enrolled at the VUB, you will receive a student card. Your student card includes an A4 document with three enrolment certificates. VUB uses your postal address in Student SelfService. You can change this yourself if necessary. New students cannot do this yet, and receive mail on their address of domicile. Student card and registration certificate are sent out maximum 1 week after completing enrollment (signing study contract).
Is your home address outside of Belgium?
Students with an international address will not receive their student card + enrolment certificates by post. As soon as they are registered, they will receive an e-mail with an appointment link to come and collect them.

Transcript of records
A transcript of records will only be available once the Examination Board has been convened, and has discussed your examination results. Your official transcript, including the examination results of each course as well as the proclamation code, can then be downloaded via the Student SelfService.
Attention! In January a transcript of records will only be available for students graduating in January.
If there is no transcript of records available for you yet, but you do need an official transcript of records, please contact your faculty.
Do you need a written proof of passing an exam? You can request this via e-mail from the faculty that offers the course.
