If you've recently completed or are close to completing your course, the Graduations Team will send you an email to your student email account to invite you to graduate online via studentConnect.

To become a graduate of the University and receive your award certificate, you must first apply to graduate by completing the online application form in studentConnect. If you don't apply to graduate within two years of completing your course, your award will be conferred in absentia in accordance with University rules. Once your award is conferred in absentia, you are no longer able to attend a graduation ceremony for that award.

After you apply to graduate, the Graduations Team will send you additional emails with important information about your graduation, so it’s important to check your student email on a regular basis to make sure you don't miss out. For detailed information on applying to graduate, confirming your attendance and other things to expect at your ceremony, visit the UWA Graduation website.

If you completed your course more than 12 months ago and no longer have access to studentConnect, Email Us to contact the Graduations Team directly. We'll send you an Application for Conferral of Award Form.
