How to Request a Transcript
Transcripts are documents that detail all years of study that you have undertaken in IADT, including the modules and grades achieved.
Transcripts are only provided to graduates of IADT, Dublin, Ireland and can be requested via email to email@example.com. The documentation is provided through Digitary, our online platform for the sharing of verified academic qualifications.
To order your transcript, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:

If you are a graduate of IADT, along with the information above, please provide:
- A lifelong email address
- Your date of birth
- The address at which you lived during the time you studied with us (not your current address)
Please note that this doesn’t apply to current students as Digitary will automatically send the access link to your student account.
Transcripts will be prepared for you and usually organised within 48 hours (Monday to Friday). There is no cost for replacement transcripts.
Please note that IADT is a third level college based in Dublin, Ireland and is not affiliated with any other college with the same initials, in the US or any other country. We can only provide transcripts for students that have studied with us.
For a variety of reasons, a students or graduates educational qualifications from IADT may need to be verified, ie a prospective employer or a new college. IADT will verify your qualifications gained with us, only on the basis of your agreement with this.

Please note that IADT will contact the student to seek their permission to supply the information required, even if there is a consent form included from the company. This is to ensure we adhere to our GDPR requirements and to protect the students’ confidential information.
Requests for information will be processed within 10 working days. Please note that it is not possible to supply information on a next day basis.
Collection of Parchments
Parchments are given out at our annual Conferring ceremonies held in March and November. For those graduates who do not pick up their parchments, they can pick these up from the Office of Academic + Student Affairs. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to organise pick up.
If the graduate cannot pick up the parchment themselves, they can nominate another person to collect it on their behalf – this person will need to bring along a letter/email from the graduate giving IADT permission to supply the parchment to the nominated person. This consent letter/email will be held on file. The person picking up will need to sign and date their receipt of the document.
Please note that, as of March 2021, due to the health and safety issues around Covid-19, the office is currently closed. Any collection of parchments cannot be organised until it is safe for us to return to campus.

European Diploma Supplements
The European Diploma Supplement (EDS) is issued to graduates of Higher Education Institutions in addition to their degree or certificate. It provides information regarding the award which is not available on the official parchment such as the skills and competences acquired, the level of the qualification and the results achieved.
It may be used in addition to your curriculum vitae and increasingly employers may request to see it. It is an important document which measures in detail your achievement. It provides a description of the nature, level, context and status of the studies that were pursued, and successfully completed. This makes it more easily understood, especially for employers and institutions outside the issuing country.
The European Diploma Supplement was developed jointly by UNESCO and the Council of Europe in order to provide information which can be easily understood by employers and academic institutions internationally.
Unfortunately European Diploma Supplements are not available for IADT graduates prior to 2014. If you are a graduate from 2014 onwards and wish to have a Diploma Supplement issued, then please email firstname.lastname@example.org providing the following details:
- Full Name at the time of your attendance at IADT
- Address at the time of your attendance at IADT
- Student ID (if known)
- Date of Birth
- Programme of Study
- Year of Graduation
- Contact telephone number and your email address to which you want the supplement to be sent
