Documentation control of diplomas and certificates
The University of Agder can ask to see your original documentation for the purposes of inspection both before and after admission. Students are required to produce the original documents upon request.
There is no longer a requirement for certified copies of certificates and references to be submitted in order to be admitted to higher education. Every year, a random selection of new students will therefore have their relevant documents checked. The students will be selected for inspection on the basis of different selection patterns each year.
It is important that you understand that you have the responsibility to ensure that all of your documentation is correct.
If you are selected for the purposes of inspection, you will then receive all necessary information via e-mail. You will receive detailed information and practical guidance concerning the continuation of the procedure.
For those selected for closer inspection:
If you do not submit original documents by the deadline, you risk losing your place. Document forgery is subject to the Penal Code § 361 and will be reported to the police without exception.
