Notification of completion

Once you lodge your final archival thesis or dissertation to the School of Graduate Research via the Candidate Centre in EOL, a recommendation will be made to the Associate Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research Training and Development (ADVC RT&D) of the School of Graduate Research (SGR) that you be formally admitted to the degree.

Upon approval of this recommendation, the SGR will then post a Statement of Academic Completion (SAC) to your address listed on myRMIT.

Graduating

You will need to apply to graduate to receive your testamur. You may elect to attend a graduation ceremony or graduate in absentia. If you attend a graduation ceremony, you will receive your testamur at the ceremony. If you elect to graduate in absentia, you will receive your testamur by registered mail.

When you graduate, your academic statements i.e. testamur, transcript and AHEGS (Australian Higher Education Statement) will be available online via My eQuals.

Therefore, it is extremely important that you keep your personal email address up to date in the RMIT system.
