Verification of diplomas

Information regarding verification of diplomas.


Information about the time and place of the meeting will be sent to you via e-mail.

It is required that you bring all original versions of the documentation you uploaded in your application. NOTE: We only accept original documents and not “Certified copies”.

All students accepted with an international education background are required to present their original documents for verification. We also randomly select students that have been accepted at BI Norwegian Business School. If you have been selected for verification you will be asked to present your original documents that you uploaded in your application to BI. Verification entails checking that the documents you uploaded in your application are authentic.

What documentation must I include for verification? 
All original versions of documents that you uploaded with your application must be presented. Examples of documentation include diploma from upper secondary school or higher education institution, final stranscript of grades, or certification of competence plus references.

What will happen if I do not submit my documentation? 
You have signed a study contract that requires you to present your original documentation if you are asked. If you fail to submit documentation, this will be considered a breach of contract. You will then lose your place at BI. You are still required to pay the tuition fee for the autumn semester. For more information, see your study contract and BI’s Academic Regulations.

Is the meeting time unsuitable?

If you have been selected for verification it is important that you show up at the set time and place. If you are unable to attend you are obligated to contact the administration at your campus, in order to schedule a new meeting time.
