Apply to attend a graduation celebration


Students can now apply to attend the December Graduation Celebrations through myUC. Applications for the December Celebrations will close on 7 October 2022Late applications will not be considered.

If you are intending to complete your qualification in Semester Two or have completed your qualification and have yet to have your qualification conferred, and you wish to attend a graduation celebration in December 2022, please apply online via MyUC selecting the following option:

  • Celebration with conferral in absentia.

Information with respect to the actual dates/times for each Faculty celebration will not be available until late October 2022 and will be made available on this web page as soon as they have been decided. 

Please note:  For those completing their qualifications in Semester Two 2022, all results for this semester must be received by the Academic Records section no later than Friday 2 December 2022 to ensure they can check your eligibility to graduate.  If any results are outstanding after Friday 2 December, your application to attend a graduation celebration will be withdrawn and you will be notified via your graduation email address on record.  This includes any student who has an outstanding Special Consideration application remedy decision pending on Friday 2 December 2022 (or have submitted a late Special Consideration application).

Multiple qualifications

If you are graduating with more than one qualification and they are from different Faculties, you may receive both qualifications together at one celebration.

Multiple qualification application process

When you apply to graduate, please indicate in the 'Comments' field which Faculty Celebration you wish to attend to receive both qualifications.

Multiple qualification celebration options

You can choose which Faculty hood you wear at the celebration. You can not wear both together but may wish to order both hoods for photographs.

If your qualifications would normally be conferred at the same celebration, they will automatically be awarded together. That is, you would not cross the stage twice in one celebration.

Please note: If both of your qualifications are from the same suite of qualifications, you will not receive both in person. For example, if you were receiving a BA(Hons) and a BA, the BA(Hons) would be conferred in person and the BA would be conferred in absentia.

Planning further study?

If you are eligible to graduate with a qualification, but intend to undertake further study towards that qualification to complete a second major, or you intend to transfer your courses to a higher qualification (for example, from a postgraduate certificate to a postgraduate diploma), you must seek further academic advice from your Faculty Office. See Student Advisors (Continuing Students) for details.

If you have completed a qualification and you are planning to continue to a new qualification, for example, you have completed a BA and plan to enrol in a BA(Hons), these are separate qualifications and you can graduate with them separately.

Transcripts and Letters

If you require your official academic record or an official letter from the University confirming your eligibility to graduate, please see Academic Transcripts and Letters. Once your qualification has been awarded, your name will be added to the online Graduate Search which is publicly accessible. The University also gives names of graduates to their former secondary school.

Stay connected with UC

When you graduate, you become a member of the UC Alumni. To join the Alumni network and remain connected to UC, visit the Alumni and Fundraising website.
