Explanatory notes for requesting a copy of a Queensland-issued certificate or statement

From 2020, Senior Education Profile (SEP) documents were issued in electronic format. Students can download them from their learning account in the Student Portal on the myQCE website.

The electronic documents are official — they include a digital signature and a unique validation code to confirm they are authentic. Printed copies can be authenticated via QR code or via the QCAA website.

If you elect to have a printed copy issued by QCAA , this is for your convenience only. QCAA issued copies are identical to the electronic documents in student learning accounts.

To obtain a copy of your results you must:

  • complete the online form
  • attach a certified copy of one form of identification
  • and pay the fee.

Acceptable forms of identification

  • Valid passport
  • Birth certificate or extract of a birth certificate
  • Adult proof of age card
  • Driver licence or learner licence.

Certifying your identification

Documents must be current, and copies must be certified as a true copy of the original by a Justice of the Peace (JP) or a Commissioner for Declarations.

You can also find JPs at major shopping centres, council libraries, court houses, banks, police stations, universities, hospitals and post offices.

Change of name

If your family name has changed since your certificate was issued, you will need to supply additional information as proof of your identity, e.g. a marriage certificate or name change certificate.

Important information

As your results are your personal business, the QCAA must take steps to be satisfied with the identity of the applicant.

  • Your results will not be made available to a person acting on your behalf.
  • Results will not be given orally.

Cost of application

The cost of each certified copy is $37.10.


Standard domestic postage is free, but there are additional charges for non-standard postage and overseas postage (subject to change by Australia Post):

  • Domestic Express Post ($10.25)
  • International standard (Airmail) ($12.30)
  • International Express Post ($38.00).

Certificates will be available for posting within seven working days following receipt of your correctly completed application.
