Document Request Form Explained

How does DRF work?

Document Request Form is a tool devised to facilitate Students and Graduates in obtaining the required paperwork from the University administration, and the School Office in providing a swift and appropriate service to that end.

If you need a document from the University,  place an order by filling out the Document Request Form. You will then receive an automated confirmation with the number of your order to the e-mail address provided by you on the form.

NOTE: Only requests placed via DRF are processed (i.e. requests via e-mail or telephone will be disregarded).

The standard processing time is three to five business days. The period may be extended in holiday seasons. There is no fee for issuing the document/s.

Once your request has been successfully processed, you will receive a confirmation of completion to the same e-mail address as before. As per the instruction provided by you on the form, the documents will either be available for collecting or will have been sent to the address you provided on the form (unless it is a private address in Kraków, in which case the documents will be available in the School Office for collecting).

Documents can be collected at the School Office, room no. 4, Monday - Friday, 8am - 4pm.

NOTE: Should you not receive confirmation of completion of the request within the given timeframe, please check your spam folder for the message. If no message is found, please contact the School Office for feedback.

Please note that the request will NOT be processed IF any of the information provided on the form is at variance with the information on your file at the School Office. If your request cannot be completed for other reasons, you will receive an e-mail informing you that it has been deleted and why. Should that happen, please place a new request, amending the problem named in the e-mail.

Uncollected documents are destroyed after two months of the issue date.

Documents are NOT mailed to private addresses, unless abroad.

Digital copies (PDF format) are e-mailed to institutions only.
