National Diplomas

To have your National Diploma awarded by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA), you need to complete the NZQA application form and return it to Open Polytechnic. NZQA requires a payment of $15.30 for the certificate.

Important Information

If you have studied courses at another institute, you will need to transfer them onto your academic record with Open Polytechnic. If you have not done this, complete and return the Application for Cross-Credit or Credit-Transfer

If you have studied your Diploma at more than one institution, the institution at which you completed most of your study will award the Diploma.

If you are also graduating with a Degree, you need to also complete the Application for Graduation - Degree.

To receive your Diploma at one of our graduation ceremonies, send us this form before 28 February. We will send you confirmation of your eligibility to graduate, including a copy of your Academic Transcript showing your award.
