Alagappa University has been a forerunner in adopting technology for creating an efficient and student friendly academic environment. The Ministry of Human Resource Development of Government of India announced about creating a National Academic Depository in the year 2016.

The vision of National Academic Depository (NAD) is born out of an initiative to provide an online store house of all academic awards. National Academic Depository (NAD) is a 24X7 online store house of all academic awards viz., certificates, diplomas, degrees, mark-sheets etc. duly digitized and lodged by academic institutions / boards / eligibility assessment bodies. NAD not only ensures easy access to and retrieval of an academic award but also validates and guarantees its authenticity and safe storage.

National Academic Depository comprises of two interoperable digital depositories viz. CDSL Ventures Limited (CVL) and NSDL Database Management Limited (NDML). These digital depositories have ensured hardware, network facilities and software of prescribed quality for smooth and secured operationalization of NAD.

Alagappa University has signed a Service Level Agreement (SLA) with NDML on 9th November 2017. The academic degrees / diplomas awarded by Alagappa University from the academic year 2008 – 2009 onwards have been uploaded in NAD portal in the NAD certificate template format that are digitally signed.
