Completion Letters

If you expect to complete your award course at the end of Semester 1 or 2, your progression will automatically be assessed during your final semester of study. If you expect to complete your award course at the end of Summer or Winter School you must complete the graduation notification form once Summer/Winter School classes commence, even if you have not received a request to submit the form. The graduation notification form will only be available during the Summer and Winter sessions.

Steps to follow

  1. Students will automatically have their progression assessed during their final semester of study.
  2. Students that are identified as having an irregular progression (i.e. not completed all compulsory units, not completed a major) will be contacted and asked if special permission to vary their degree requirements has been granted.
  3. Students will receive an email towards the end of their final semester requesting confirmation that the assessed degree and majors are the same as what the students is expecting to receive.
  4. A letter of completion is then issued once the semester completion date has passed and all results appear on students' academic transcripts. This letter includes the following information:
    • Award course completed
    • Official course completion date
    • Majors and minors (where applicable)
    • Graduation ceremony date (where applicable)
    • A statement that all study at the University of Sydney is conducted in English.
    • Sample of a Completion Letter

Completion letters will be emailed to your university email account after:

  • Semester 1 - July
  • Semester 2 - January
  • Summer School - March
  • Winter School - August

Letters for immigration purposes

If you are planning to remain in Australia after you graduate and you require a letter to verify the details of your course, you will need to submit a request for letter form to the Student Centre with the "verify my completed qualifications" box selected. You should submit this form during the exam period of your final semester of study. Please do not wait until your grades have been released.

Rules to remember

  • If you are intending to upgrade or transfer into another course, please notify the Graduations Coordinator by emailing business.graduations@sydney.edu.au
  • Expect a delay if you sit for later tests and results are pending.
  • Students must always keep their address up to date on MyUni.
