Types of Certificates:
A certification is an official document that confirms attendance, awarded degrees, current and past enrollment, expected graduation date, student’s status and major(s). Official certifications are printed on security paper with the University seal and the Registrar's signature.
Enrollment certificates can be issued either in English or in Bulgarian language.
Graduates may request an official “Certificate of Graduation”, also known as graduation verification. The Certificate details the graduate’s name, degree(s) awarded, major(s) and minor(s), applicable honors, graduation date. It is signed by the Registrar and is imprinted with the official University Seal.
The Internship Certificate provides the employer with a letter supporting the educative value of the internship and your current or continuing enrollment at AUBG.
