Statement of academic completion (SAC)

A statement of academic completion (SAC) is a document that confirms you have completed all academic requirements of your program.

Please note that your SAC is not your official RMIT testamur (certificate) – it is a separate document for which you have to apply and pay a fee. A SAC is useful if:

  • you are applying for Permanent Residency in Australia
  • you need to prove your study start and end dates for visa requirements
  • you are applying for entry to a professional association
  • you are applying for General Skilled Migration (GSM).

For most other purposes we highly recommend that you instead request your academic transcript, which also includes completion and conferral dates (where applicable).

When you are able to request an SAC online, it means you have been formally completed and your transcript will show your program completion date. If you are unable to request an SAC, but you need a transcript with completion details please do not request the transcript until your SAC is available.
