Apply to graduate in person

December 2018 ceremonies

Applications to graduate in the December 2018 ceremonies will be open from 01 August to 09 September 2018.

Applications to graduate should be submitted via myUC. If your password has expired or you have mislaid it, please phone the Contact Centre (0800 VARSITY).

If you are graduating in person, it is compulsory to wear correct academic regalia. Late regalia orders will incur a non-refundable late fee.

Application dates

Applications for the December 2018 ceremonies will open on 1 August.

Please note:

  • You may submit an application to graduate at the December ceremonies if you believe you will complete a qualification in Semester Two.
  • If you have already graduated in absentia you cannot also attend a graduation ceremony for the same qualification.

Academic regalia

If you are graduating in person, it is compulsory to wear correct academic regalia. You should order this as soon as you have applied to graduate. Late regalia orders will incur a non-refundable late fee. Find out how to order your academic regalia.


All graduands are guaranteed three guest tickets and can request more when they apply to graduate via the online application form. Graduands do not need a ticket for themselves. Tickets are sent out with the Graduation Pack a week or two prior to the graduation ceremony. If we are not able to provide you with all the tickets you have requested, you will be sent an email ahead of time. Due to the limited amount of space available, we are not always able to provide everyone with the full number of tickets they have requested.

Multiple qualifications

If you are graduating with more than one degree, please see the important information about multiple qualifications.

Planning further study?

If you are eligible to graduate with a qualification, but intend to undertake further study towards that qualification to complete a second major, or you intend to transfer your courses to a higher qualification (for example, from a postgraduate certificate to a postgraduate diploma), you must seek further academic advice from your College Office. See College Advisors (Liaison Office website) for details.

If you have completed a qualification and you are planning to continue to a new qualification, for example, you have completed a BA and plan to enrol in a BA(Hons), these are separate qualifications and you can graduate with them separately.

Transcripts and Letters

If you require your official academic record or an official letter from the University confirming your eligibility to graduate, please see Academic Transcripts and Letters. Once your qualification has been awarded, your name will be added to the online Graduate Search which is publicly accessible. The University also gives names of graduates to their former secondary school.

Stay connected with UC

When you graduate, you become a member of the UC Alumni. To join the Alumni network and remain connected to UC, visit the Alumni and Fundraising website.
