Applying to Graduate
There are several steps you need to ensure you can graduate:
Step 1 - Check eligibility: Eligible students will automatically receive graduation information by July 2013, provided that:
• Your postal address is current and correct in the Student Information System AND
• Your Faculty Office have completed you/deemed you as 'passed' or ‘potentially complete’ in the Student System by Friday, 21 June 2013.
If you are unsure whether you have completed the requirements of your award, please contact your Faculty Office.
Step 2 - Online application: Submit an online application form (opening June 2013) by the closing date, Monday, 19 August 2013. If you submit your application correctly you will receive a confirmation of application at your nominated e-mail address upon submission. Please ensure you receive this automated email. If you do not this may indicate that your application has not successfully reached the Graduation Office, and your degree will not be conferred.
Step 3 - Payment: Pay for your academic dress hire before the due date. This can be paid by cheque, money order or credit card. Cheques and money orders are to be made payable to Flinders University and sent to the Cashier’s Office, GPO Box 2100 Adelaide SA 5001. Credit card payments may be made online via iPay.
Students must also pay all debts to the University; these include debts to the library, as well as other fees. Your parchment, academic transcript and Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement will not be released to you until all outstanding debts have been finalised.
Step 4 - Check your graduation status online: Check your Graduation Status in the Student Information System. This will become active within 10 days after you apply to graduate.
If your status shows as "Expected to Graduate", your eligibility to graduate is yet to be confirmed. A status of "Pass" indicates your degree is completed and you are approved for graduation. If your status indicates that you are “Expected to Graduate” but you believe it should read “Pass”, please contact your Faculty Office for advice.
Step 5- Check your confirmation letter: Eligible graduands who have applied to graduate will receive a confirmation letter in September 2013, please ensure you read this carefully. If you have not received one by 20 September 2013, please contact the Graduation Office immediately to confirm your participation in the September ceremonies.
Step 6 - Academic Dress and Tickets: Collect your academic dress and tickets from Flinders University prior to your ceremony. Dates, times and location will be available shortly.
Step 7- Graduation Day Procedures: Confirm your attendance at the Registration Area at the Adelaide Town Hall. Registration desks will only be open for 1.5 hours prior to the ceremony commencement. For further information regarding graduation cermony procedures, please refer to: On the Day.
It is compulsory for graduands to wear the correct Flinders University academic dress at a graduation ceremony. Detailed information regarding the hire of Academic Dress can be found here.
Confirmation of Graduation
Students are strongly advised to check their allocated ceremony in the Student Information System for confirmation. After you have logged in you will need to select the 'My Graduation' tab. Please note: your details will not appear until after an application has been lodged.
This will provide information on:
- your ceremony date and time,
- whether you have applied to attend or have your award conferred in absentia,
- how many tickets you have requested, and
- your formal name to be printed on your parchment (you can view this under the 'My Details' menu).
Students can also update information on name pronunciation. This will be used by the speaker on the day of the graduation ceremony and is useful for students who have names that are more difficult to pronounce.
