Everything you need to graduate from UWA

Congratulations! It’s almost time to celebrate your achievements at your graduation. First, you need to apply to graduate, regardless of whether you’ll attend a ceremony or receive your certificate in the mail (graduating in absentia, Latin for in or during one’s absence). Once you’ve applied, we’ll guide you through the steps required. Read on to find out everything you need to know about graduating at UWA.


Those who graduated from UWA in 2020 are eligible to attend a ceremony within two years of graduation. 

The online form for indicating which ceremony you would like to attend has now closed. If you have any questions about your graduation ceremony, please submit them via askUWA and select 'Graduations' as the subject.

COVID-safe guidelines: please be reminded to stay home stay home if you are unwell or have recently been in contact with a positive COVID-19 patient. Remember to practice hand hygiene, physical distancing and respiratory etiquette; and leave/seek assistance if symptoms develop while at a Graduation Ceremony.



Important dates

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 and 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 Monday 21 June 2021 to be eligible for the July 2021 graduation ceremonies. Once your thesis has been classified as 'passed' or 'passed subject to correction', contact the Graduations team via askUWA.
