There are a few important dates to be mindful of to make sure you can graduate on time.
Nominated completion period: When you enrol, you’re asked to nominate when you plan on completing your course. This lets us know when to send you an invitation to graduate.
Apply to graduate: When we send you an invitation to graduate, it’s important you apply on studentConnect before the deadline.
Confirmation of attendance: If you apply to graduate at a ceremony, we’ll send you another email to confirm the date and time of your ceremony, and ask you confirm that you’re able to attend.
Course completion: Your course needs to be completed by this date for you to be eligible to graduate – it can be affected by cross-institutional studies or studying overseas in your last semester.
PhD or Master's by Research students: You must submit final version documents to the Graduate Research School before Wednesday, 15 November 2023 to be eligible for the December 2023 graduation ceremonies. Once your thesis has been classified as 'passed' or 'passed subject to correction', contact the Graduations team via askUWA.
conferral of awards - graduating without attending a ceremony and having your certificate mailed to you. Once your award is conferred in absentia, you will not have the opportunity to attend a future graduation ceremony for your award.

Should a student wish to change their application from 'in absentia' to 'attending a ceremony', the student needs to communicate this in writing to the Graduations Office one calendar month before the monthly in absentia conferral date.
