Graduation 2020 may be different, but your achievements are just as exceptional. We'll still be celebrating with you!

Graduating in the year of COVID-19

We've decided, with heavy hearts, to cancel the Melbourne Graduation Ceremony and Parade, scheduled for 16 December 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a dramatic impact on how we work, live and study. In the interests of our community's safety and wellbeing, as well as the ongoing uncertainty around COVID-19 restrictions, we will no longer be holding large-scale Graduation events. 

We'll still be celebrating with you in 2020!

We know that graduating is a huge milestone, and we want to ensure we still mark this occasion with you. We're currently planning a series of celebratory events that you'll be able to share with your classmates, friends and family. 

We'll update the Graduation events section below as more details are confirmed.

2021 Melbourne Graduation Ceremony

In addition to the events being held this year, you're invited to celebrate your achievement at the Melbourne Graduation Ceremony in December 2021. When you apply to graduate, simply select the 2021 ceremony as your graduation option. Alternatively, you can choose to graduate in absentia

If you choose to attend the 2021 ceremony, this is when you'll receive your testamur. Find out more about your testamur and academic statements.

Graduation 2020 events

Stay tuned, we'll publish details of #RMITgrad2020 events here as they're confirmed.

Testamurs and academic statements

As soon as your school completes you from your program, you'll have access to your certified, digital academic transcript via My eQuals. Vocational education students will also have access to their Statement of Attainment.

You'll have access to your remaining digital academic statements, including your testamur, when you graduate from your program - when this is depends on whether you graduate at a ceremony or in absentia.

If you graduate at a ceremony, this is when you'll receive your testamur. So it's important to note that if you choose to graduate at a ceremony in 2021, you won't be able to access your testamur until then.

If you choose to graduate in absentia, you'll be able to access your testamur at the end of the month in which your school completes you from your program.
