Before you apply

Before you apply to graduate, make sure you:

Note: If you are applying to graduate from an intermediate award please contact your school before applying to graduate, as your school needs to quick admit you to the intermediate conferring program. Once your school has done so, you can then apply to graduate.

Open University Australia students: please refer to Apply to graduate OUA before applying.

Important: From the day your school has confirmed your completion (this means that you have completed all program requirements) you have three months to choose your graduation option. If you do not select your graduation option within three months you will be conferred in absentia and you will be unable to attend a graduation ceremony for that program.
