The Next Steps for Graduands

There are several steps you need to follow to ensure you can graduate:

Step 1 - Payment: Pay for your academic dress hire before the due date, 22 September 2014. 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 can be made online via iPay. You can also pay in person on campus at the Cashier's Office.

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 2 - 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 3- Check your confirmation letter: Eligible graduands will receive a confirmation letter in September, please ensure you read this carefully. If you have not received one by 17 September, please contact the Graduation Office immediately to confirm your participation in the September ceremonies.

Step 4 - Academic Dress and Tickets:
Academic dress may be hired from the University for the following cost: Gown $29.50, Hood $13.00, Mortar Board $7.50. Payments can be made online through the University's online payment service iPay, or in person in the Cashier's Office, Flinders University. Guest tickets will be available to collect along with your academic dress the week of the ceremony.

Academic dress hire payment is due Friday 22 September 2014.
