CERTIFICATES/TESTAMURS

If you attend your graduation ceremony, you will receive your certificate at the ceremony. You will also receive a copy of your academic transcript and Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS).

If you do not attend your graduation ceremony, you will be graduated in absentia and your documents will be mailed from the University in August (for the mid-year Graduation ceremonies) or in January (for the end of year Graduation ceremonies).   Please note that we will send your documents to the mailing address you have listed in mySI-net so it is important that you keep this up to date.

If you elect to defer attending a graduation ceremony you will still be graduated in absentia and your documents will mailed to you. This does not affect your ability to attend a later graduation ceremony. For example:

If you are eligible to graduate in July but elect to defer attending a graduation ceremony until the next December, you will:

  • be conferred your award at the July ceremony; and 
  • receive your documents in the mail during August; and 
  • receive information about the following December ceremony during late October of that year.

If you are eligible to graduate in December but elect to defer attending a graduation ceremony until the next July, you will:

  • be conferred your award at the December ceremony; and 
  • receive your documents in the mail during January; and 
  • receive information about the following July ceremony during late May of that year.

Documents are sent by standard mail within Australia and by Airmail or EMS Courier to international addresses.
