Latin term or phrase: TRIBVIT VT DOCVMENTO SIT GRADVS...
Hello everybody,

I need some help with this phrase:

RECTOR VNIVERSITATIS P.F. HOC DIPLOMA DOMINAE xxx TRIBVIT VT DOCVMENTO SIT GRADVS ARTIVM MAGISTRAE

Thanks in advance for any suggestion.

gives as a certification of her MA degree
Explanation:
Hi Ana,

the sentence means:
The rector of the P. F. University gives this diploma/certificate to Ms. as a certification (to prove) of her MA grade.

Tribuo needs dativus finalis, therefore is documento here. Gradus is in genitivus.
I think this is a complicated and mixed neo-Latin sentence. Two expressions are mixed here. One is: tribuit hoc diploma documento gradus A. M. The other is: tribuit hoc diploma ut sit documentum gradus A. M.
Ut sit documentum is the same as documento, but these structures are mixed here.
