Graduation is an important milestone 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 efforts of all involved.

Once the results have been released for your final trimester of study the college will assess your eligibility to graduate. If you are deemed eligible to graduate you will be sent further information regarding your graduation/ceremony via email.

Ceremonies

Invitations to the ceremonies will be sent to eligible students in the month prior to the graduation ceremony and will outline the ticket cost. The invitation contains all information for the relevant ceremony, including costs, number of guests and details of academic dress requirements.

Upcoming Graduation Ceremonies

 

Academic Regalia

Graduates who attend the graduation ceremony are required to wear full academic dress at a cost of  $73.50 (subject to change, current as at October 2022).

Your regalia is confirmed and booked when you RSVP and is managed by REED Graduations.

In Absentia & July Graduates

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 post after the date of the ceremony.

Students who graduate in July will automatically graduate in absentia as there is no ceremony held in July, however these students will be invited to attend the November Graduation Ceremonies.

 

Covid Update

In the event a ceremony is not held due to Covid restrictions or other unforeseen circumstances, you will advised accordingly and invited to attend a ceremony at a later date.

 

Graduation Documentation

Every graduate receives their Award Testamur and an Official Statement of Results upon graduation. 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 full legal name according to our records will appear in the ‘Personal Details’ section of your Student Portal.

If you need to update your full legal name please complete the Change of Name Application Form and forward with relevant documentation to the college.

To update your address details you may do this through the Student Portal or contact the Student Experience Team at your relevant campus.

Should you need extra copies of your Official Statement of Results or require a copy prior to graduation please complete and return the Official Statement of Results Application Form.

A charge of $30 applies for each copy and takes approximately 10 business days to be processed and posted to you.

If you do not receive your graduation documentation and fail to notify us within 12 months, you will be charged for a replacement.

 

LETTER OF COMPLETION

The Letter of Completion is a letter from the College that may be needed by an external organisation to confirm that a student has completed the requirements of their award and is eligible to graduate or has graduated.

A letter of completion is usually used to provide evidence

  • to another educational institution that admission requirements have been met or
  • to an employer that the student has been deemed by the College as having completed an award.

An application for a Letter of Completion needs to be assessed and confirmation and approval must be given by the Discipline, Finance, the Library and Learning and Teaching Committee before any letter can be issued to a student. Therefore, to allow for this approval process, a Letter of Completion cannot be issued until approximately 15 working days after the students final results have been released.

To apply for a Letter of Completion please complete the application form and scan and email to [email protected]

 

The Alumni Network

Many graduates of the College stay connected to the College to maintain personal and professional contact with other Alumni, 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.

ACAP is a very friendly environment, and I like that the new skills I am learning are helpful to have in everyday life. The practical component was definitely the selling point for me. I love the method of group work and discussion in class. Working together helps us to understand the concepts better. Alanoof, Graduate Diploma of Counselling

After my ACAP student placement I was offered a choice of two positions. I really love the job I chose. I wouldn’t have had this opportunity without ACAP. Anu, Master of Social Work (Qualifying)
