Attendance at a graduation ceremony
Do I have to attend a graduation ceremony?
You have two options for your graduation, when you apply to graduate in studentConnect you can choose to:
- Receive your certificate at a Graduation Ceremony, held in Winthrop Hall on the Crawley campus in Perth; or
- Graduate in absentia at a ceremony or at one of the Senate Conferral Dates without you being present and have your certificate mailed to you. If you choose this option, you won't be able to attend a future ceremony to receive your award.
If you do not apply to graduate, after two years of completing your course, your award will be automatically conferred in-absentia and you will miss out on the opportunity to attend a future graduation ceremony for your award.
In addition to receiving a hard copy of your original award certificate (testamur) at your ceremony (or posted if selected in-absentia); you will have access to certified digital copies of your award certificate and Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) via My eQuals.
