Graduation refers to the formal conferral of awards either at a ceremony or in absentia. Once you have completed all the requirements of your award course, you will be made eligible to graduate.
- You will be informed of your graduand status approximately two weeks after the last day to change your enrolment in your final semester through MyUni.
- If you are about to commence what you anticipate to be your final semester, you will need to check that you are going to meet the requirements of your degree. Please refer to the appropriate handbook for the year you started your award course and check the resolutions.
- If you are unsure about your degree status, contact Student Services in person or via email before the first week of classes. You can use this advice to make any necessary adjustments to your enrolment before the semester deadline.
A letter of completion will be issued to MyUni through your Sydney Student portal once the semester completion date has passed and all results appear on your student record.
This letter will include your completion date, the major or majors you completed and a statement that English is the medium of study at the University of Sydney.
If you have not received any correspondence about graduation, but feel you are eligible to graduate, it is important to contact the Faculty as soon as possible.
The Faculty will notify the Graduations Office once you are made eligible to graduate and will assign you to a ceremony.
You should not make plans to attend a ceremony until you have received confirmation from the Graduations Office that you have been assigned to a ceremony.
Once you have been assigned to a ceremony, an invitation will be issued to MyUni through the Sydney Student portal. Ensure that you read the invitation carefully and follow the instructions to confirm your attendance at your ceremony.
For more information about graduation ceremonies or what to do if you cannot attend a ceremony, please see the Graduations Office website.
