Receiving your certificate upon completion of your degree

Will I automatically receive my certificate once I have completed my course?

You'll receive your award certificate when you formally graduate from your course, either at a Graduation Ceremony, which you attend or in absentia (without you being present) at a in absentia conferral date.

Once you apply to graduate in studentConnect and either attend a ceremony or graduate in absentia, you will receive a hard copy of your original award certificate (testamur) at your ceremony (or posted if selected in absentia); as well as access to certified digital copies of your award certificate and Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) via My eQuals.

The graduation date printed on your certificate will be the date your award was formally conferred by the University, if you choose to delay your graduation the conferral date on your certificate will change as a result and cannot be back dated.
