Graduation is an important landmark for each student that recognises the realisation of academic goals achieved through years of commitment, dedication and hard work. It is an opportunity to gather with family, friends and colleagues to celebrate and acknowledge the effort of all involved.

Graduations occur at prescribed dates throughout the year, however, there are only two ceremonies.


Ceremonies are held in May and in November.

The College holds graduation ceremonies twice a year in May and November. All eligible graduands and graduates will be invited to attend.

The invitation contains all of the information for the relevant ceremony, including costs, number of guests and details of academic dress requirements. Graduands who attend the graduation ceremony are required to wear full academic dress. Academic dress hire is usually around $90.00 (including trencher cap) and is arranged through the same sorts of processes as for a university and at approximately the same cost.

In Absentia

You may also elect to graduate in absentia which means that you will not need to attend the ceremony and your award will be sent to you by registered mail after the date of the ceremony.

What name will appear on my award?

Your full legal name will appear on your award. Your award is an official document, therefore, it is very important that your student file contains your full legal name including middle names & your current address.

If you need to update your full legal name please contact the Registrar's Office.

To update your address details you may do this through the student portal or contact Student Administration at your relevant campus.

The Alumni Network

Many graduates of the College desire to maintain ongoing contact and engagement with fellow graduates and to maintain personal and professional contact with educators and college staff. The Alumni Network was established to facilitate this objective. All graduating students are invited to join the network and benefit from the contacts, activities and information that membership of the Alumni Network offers. Information and contact details on the Alumni Network are available through the college website.
