Graduating Students – Graduands

(Bachelor and Master Degrees)

Students who have completed the requirements of their degree, but have not yet been formally admitted to that degree through a graduation ceremony, are known as graduands.

The information on this page is for graduands who have received a graduation invitation from the University. Graduation invitations are sent by email only one to two months before the upcoming graduation period. Students must receive and respond to an invitation before they can graduate.

July/August 2016 invitations

Invitations for the July/August 2016 ceremonies will be sent in mid-May 2016. Invitations will be sent to your student email account. You will have until Friday 3 June 2016 to respond to your invitation via my.unimelb (the student portal).

If you receive and respond to your graduation invitation, all correspondence from the Graduations Office will be via email to your student email account, including instructions on what to do next and booking regalia.

You must receive and respond to an invitation in order to graduate in July/August 2016.

Changes to your details

If you have any changes to your name or name order, contact Stop 1 or download and submit the forms to make the change by Friday 3 June 2016. If you can make any corrections well before the end of semester one, you may find this more convenient.
