Graduate in absentia and attend a 2021 ceremony (excluding SIM, Vietnam and SUIBE ceremonies)

Students who graduate in absentia in 2021 will also be invited to celebrate their achievements with their classmates, friends and family at a 2021 ceremony (excluding SIM, Vietnam and SUIBE ceremonies).

If you graduate in absentia, you'll confer (graduate) at the end of the month that your school confirms you have completed your program. You'll then automatically be given access to your digital Testamur or VE Qualification Statement via My eQuals and will be able to order your hard copy to be sent to you by post.

In Absentia Grad Flowchart
Only applicable to 2020 and 2021 graduates, in response to cancelled ceremonies due to COVID-19 restrictions. Students who have a debt to RMIT are not able to graduate or receive their Testamur/VE Qualification Statement until this is cleared.

If you don’t apply to graduate, you’ll automatically graduate in absentia at the end of the month that your school confirms you have completed your program (excluding SIM, Vietnam and SUIBE students). However, if this doesn’t suit you and you want to opt out, you must apply to graduate at a 2021 ceremony.

If you apply to graduate at a ceremony, you won’t graduate or get access to your Testamur/VE Qualification Statement until your chosen ceremony.
