How to Apply Online for Degree Certificate in AIOU

How to Apply Online for Degree Certificate in AIOU Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) being one of the largest distance learning universities has revolutionized its degree application process with an online tracking system for programs (Matric, F.A, B.A, B.Ed, M.A, M.Ed, and Ph.D.). The vouchers for the fee of degree (urgent or normal) are available on the AIOU website and even one can fill fields online and pay in different banks.

In this guide, we’ll move through each step essentially required for local (students in Pakistan) and foreign students to apply and get degrees shipped (posted) to their houses directly. Also, we’ll walk you through some precautions so that information-filled documents are not returned.

We’ll discuss the most common problems faced by the students with their comprehensive solutions. If you have any queries in any of the processes, we’ll guide you through the comments section.

To apply for a degree certificate from AIOU (Allama Iqbal Open University), you can follow the steps below:

Obtain the required documents:
Make sure you have the necessary documents ready for your degree certificate application. These typically include your original transcripts, a copy of your National Identity Card (NIC), and any other relevant educational documents.

Download the application form:
Visit the official website of Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) and navigate to the “Downloads” or “Forms” section. Look for the application form specifically meant for requesting a degree certificate. Download and print the form.

Fill out the application form:
Carefully fill out the application form with accurate and up-to-date information. Provide details such as your name, father’s name, program/course name, enrollment number, and contact information. Double-check the form to ensure all information is correct.

Attach supporting documents:
Gather the required supporting documents, including your original transcripts, copy of NIC, and any other relevant educational documents. Make sure to attach clear and legible copies of these documents with your application form.

Pay the application fee:
Contact the AIOU administration or refer to the official website to determine the application fee for the degree certificate. Follow the specified payment process, such as visiting a designated bank or using an online payment system, to submit the required fee. Retain the payment receipt as proof of payment.

Submit the application:
Once you have filled out the application form, attached the necessary documents, and paid the application fee, visit the AIOU regional office or mail the application package to the designated address. Ensure that the package is securely sealed and properly addressed.

Follow up:
After submitting your application, it’s a good idea to follow up with the AIOU administration to confirm the receipt of your application and to inquire about the processing timeline. You can contact them through their helpline, email, or by visiting the regional office in person.

It’s important to note that the specific application process and requirements may vary, so it’s always advisable to refer to the official AIOU website or contact their administration directly for the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding degree certificate applications.

Here are the main steps to apply for a degree.

Fill out the Challan Online

The challan form is available online ( and one can fill in the following information in the online form to generate their challan form

  • Name
  • Father Name
  • Roll Number (optional)
  • CNIC

The challan essentials are filled online. Once the submit button is clicked challan form is available on the web which can be printed or saved to print later.

One other thing to consider is the amount section of the form. Different degrees have different fees for the urgent or normal application process which we’ll discuss further in the next section in detail.

To know more about fees check the following image (we recommend you visit the official website for the latest fees).

NOTE: Besides the degree fee if you’ve other dues left YOU MUST ADD THEM TO THE CHALLAN AMOUNT. Read below if you have unpaid dues in all semesters.

Add Unpaid Dues

AIOU re-appear fee for different programs

In most cases, students left their re-appear fee or workshop fee during any of the semesters. Add those unpaid dues to the original degree amount.

Example: If you have to apply for a B.Ed degree and you also have to pay a re-appear fee for two subjects, then you’ll add the amount of the total as follow:
Normal Fee: 1000 + (2 * 400) = 1800 total
Urgent Fee: 2000 + (2 * 400) = 2800 total

Note: If you have unpaid dues left your degree forms will be rejected. So, be careful and pay all dues to avoid rejections.

Pay Challan in Bank

Previously AIOU has been supporting multiple banks but now they’ve narrowed the options. You can submit fee in the following banks:

  • Allied Bank Limited (ABL)

Submitted challan copy should be saved properly even one can snapshot with their phone.

Urgent/Normal Degree Delivery Days

With an urgent fee, the degree will be ready in 2 weeks and delivered to your address. Usually, with the urgent fee, it takes a month to reach your degree home (including post-delays). Degrees are sent via TCS to your doorsteps.

The university is not responsible for delivering you early with a “Normal Fee”. When I asked them about time they told me degrees with normal fees are delivered in years. I don’t know exactly how much time it takes with the normal fee because I haven’t met a single student with a normal degree fee experience. Write down below in the comments if you are the one.

I recommend an urgent fee for fast delivery as it takes under a month.

Fill Degree Form

Download the link for the degree form:

It is a simple form where student information needs to be filled in. Keynotes to keep in mind during filling out this form are as follows:

  • Check the box for (urgent/normal) in the top left corner
  • Write down re-appear and the full fee in the blanks
  • Add information about your passed subjects with their code numbers, total number, and semester (the semester in which the subject was passed)

All other things are fairly explanatory and simple. If you are striving for something you can write it down to us in the comments section for help.
