Postage of your award certificate
Can I have my degree certificate posted to me if I do not want to attend a ceremony?
If you wish to graduate without attending a formal ceremony, you can select to graduate in absentia when you complete your graduation application in studentConnect.
Your award certificate will be sent to your semester address in studentConnect by the Graduations Office within 10 university working days of your scheduled Graduation Ceremony Round or in absentia Conferral Date. Certificates are posted by registered post within Australia, and DHL Courier for overseas, so allow at least 10 working days for delivery.
As part of your graduation, as well as receiving an original hard copy award certificate (testamur) you'll also receive access to certified digital copies of your award certificate and Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) via My eQuals.
While you're waiting for your hard copy to arrive in the post, you'll receive an email from My eQuals to let you know your certified digital award certificate and AHEGS are ready for you to view and share. Follow the prompts in the email to set up your My eQuals account and start sharing your documents.
