Invitation & RSVP
Students eligible for the September 2017 graduations should receive their invitation by the end of July 2017. If you do not receive an invitation by the specified time, please contact the Student Progress and Graduation Office immediately.
Please ensure you have responded to your invitation in MyUC by the RSVP deadline, Friday 25th August 2018.
Response to Invitations
After receiving your invitation you must advise whether or not you intend to be present at the Graduation ceremony on MyUC by 25th August 2017. If you no longer have access to MyUC, you can email your response to the Student Progress and Graduation Office. If you wish to request deferring your graduation to a later ceremony round (ie. March/April 2018), you must email this request to the Student Progress and Graduation Office by 25th August 2017. At most students may defer graduation for one ceremony round.
To celebrate your special day, immediately following your Ceremony, you and your guests are invited to an exclusive function at old Parliament House with beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), canapés and entertainment.
Guests of graduates need to provide a copy of their ticket upon entry. Graduates enjoy immediate access.
Unable to Attend?
If you are unable to attend the ceremony, your award will be conferred in absentia.
Testamurs for students who have requested to confer in absentia will be available for collection from the Student Centre for the week following the graduation ceremonies. Students must present valid photo identification to collect the testamur. Students must also provide authorisation for someone to collect a testamur on their behalf.
Any uncollected testamurs will be sent via Courier. The Graduation Team will contact all graduates via University email and any non-University email registered on the system in order to confirm a suitable mailing address and contact telephone number (note that couriers cannot deliver to PO Boxes). The testamur cannot be posted until your address is confirmed, so please ensure you are monitoring your email account after the ceremony to avoid delays.
Your name will appear in the graduation booklet regardless of your attendance at the ceremony.
