Please note that an application for conferral must be lodged to the Graduation Office whether you choose to attend a cermony or not. You are unable to receive your parchment until your award has been conferred. If you do not wish to attend a cermony please see Conferral Information In Absentia.

Academic dress can be hired from the University for the following cost: Gown $29.50, Hood $13.00, Mortarboard $7.50. Payment can be made by cheque, money order or credit card.
