Higher Education Application to Graduate

From the 1st January 2017, higher education 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:

  1. I have completed all of the relevant units in my course sequence including all core and elective units by the result release date of my last trimester of enrolment.
  2. I have completed any relevant placement including submitting all placement paperwork by the result release date of my last trimester of enrolment.
  3. I have completed any relevant and required workshops for my course by the result release date of my last trimester of enrolment.
  4. I have no outstanding tuition or enrolment fees.
  5. I have returned all library books and have paid any outstanding library fines by the result release date of my last trimester of enrolment.
  6. I have confirmed my full legal name including middle name/s on my student file or updated by the result release date of my last trimester of enrolment.

After results have been release 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 below table).

The Discipline will then check that all academic requirements for the course have been met including any required workshops and 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 or in absentia and will be asked to RSVP in the month prior to the ceremony to indicate their preference.

Important Information

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 not be eligible for the graduation session immediately following their last trimester of study.

If you believe that you have completed your course but have not received a confirmation email by the submission confirmation email date in the table above, please contact the Graduations Coordinator at statements&graduation@navitas.com.
