Graduations are very important occasions, as they mark the culmination of many years of study. The Graduation team at the University of Canberra puts a lot of effort into ensuring the graduation ceremonies run smoothly. The Graduation Office coordinates the ceremonies, with the assistance of many people across the campus.

All outstanding fees (including SSAF) must be resolved prior to being invited to graduate.
