Graduating in the year of COVID-19

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we’ve had to cancel or defer many of our graduation ceremonies in 2020. You can find updates about each ceremony on the Graduation options page. You can also keep updated on the planning of our celebratory Graduation 2020 events.

How to apply

Step 1. Check your eligibility 

There are different eligibility requirements depending on your program, where you're studying and whether you want to attend a ceremony. 

OUA student? Read this first.

Step 2. Choose your graduation option

Decide whether you want to graduate at a ceremony or in absentia. 

Step 3. Log in and apply

Need help with your login? See bottom of page for details.

Once logged in:

  • Go to My Student Record > Graduation details > Apply to graduate/Change graduation option
  • Follow the instructions to select your graduation option and complete your application.

After you've applied, you can continue to log in to change your graduation option and other details until the deadline. 

Step 4. Check your personal email and contact details are up-to-date

Check that your personal details are correct, including your personal email address. We’ll send all further communications about graduation to your personal* email, not your RMIT student email. 

To view and update your details log in to Enrolment Online then select Update my details.  

*If you're studying at the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM), the email will be sent to your SIM campus email account (xxxxx@mymail.sim.edu.sg)

   

Transfer your emails and course materials from RMIT systems

Once you graduate, RMIT is legally required to deactivate your student email account and cancel your access to RMIT systems such as Canvas. Unless you’re continuing your studies, you’ll lose access to all RMIT systems 24-48 hours after you graduate.

Please save any information stored in your student email or on RMIT systems to your own personal device or cloud storage.

If you don't apply to graduate...

If you don’t apply to graduate, you’ll automatically graduate in absentia at the end of the month that your school confirms your completion. You’ll also be invited to celebrate your achievements at a 2021 ceremony**.

**Excluding SIM, Vietnam and SUIBE students.
