Vocational Education and Training Application to Graduate

From 1 April 2015 new standards apply

From 1 April 2015 VET students who complete their course will no longer be required to apply to graduate. The college will automatically submit the application for them.

If you answer "YES" to the checklist below you may be eligible to graduate:


I have completed all of the relevant units of competency in my course sequence.


I have completed any relevant and required workshops or placement for my course.


I have no outstanding tuition or enrolment fees.


I have returned all library books and have paid any outstanding library fines.


I have confirmed my full legal name including middle name/s on my student file or updated through the Registrar's Office.


I have advised the college of my Unique Student Identifier (USI)

After results have been approved and released each trimester by the Board of Examiners, the college will assess the status of all VET students.

All VET students who are deemed to have completed the academic requirements of their course will be forwarded to the school for assessment. At this stage, the student will receive an email stating that their application has been received. See the submission confirmation email date in the table below.

The school will check that all requirements for the course have been met including any required workshops or placement. The Head of School will then recommend that the student be regarded as eligible to graduate.

Once the student has been deemed eligible to graduate by the Head of School, the college will prepare all of the documentation for graduation including the testamur and the official statement of results.

The awards will then be conferred by the Dean on the awards issuance date (see table below) which will be within 30 days of the Head of School recommendation date (that is, 30 days from the date the student is deemed eligible to graduate).
