Vocational Education and Training Application to Graduate


From 1 April 2015, VET students who complete their course will no longer be required to apply to graduate. The college will automatically submit an application on their behalf.

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 and the results have been finalised by the result release date of my last trimester of enrolment.


I have completed any relevant placement including submitting all placement paperwork by the result release date of my last trimester of enrolment.


I have completed any relevant and required workshops for my course by the result release date of my last trimester of enrolment.


I have no outstanding tuition or enrolment fees.


I have returned all library books and have paid any outstanding library fines by the result release date of my last trimester of enrolment.


I have confirmed my full legal name including middle name/s are correct on my student file or arranged for these details to be updated by the result release date of my last trimester of enrolment.


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 students. Any student who is identified as having completed the academic requirements of their course will be forwarded to the Discipline for assessment. At this stage the student will receive an email to their personal email address stating that their application has been submitted (see the submission confirmation email date in the table below).

The Discipline will then check that all academic requirements for the course have been met including any required workshops or placement. If all requirements are met, the Associate Dean will then recommend that the student be regarded as eligible to graduate. The College will then review the students financial and library record. Once all checks are complete students will be contacted via email with further information.

All students have the option of graduating at a ceremony of in absentia and will be asked to RSVP in the month prior to the ceremony to indicate their preference.

All grades must be finalised by the result release date in order to qualify for the next available graduation session. Therefore students who have extensions, need to resubmit assessments or are finalising placement may be not eligible for the graduation session immediately following their last trimester of study.
