Next Steps

There are several steps you need to follow if you are attending the December 2015 graduation:


Step 1 - Payment: Academic dress can be hired from the University. Payment can be made 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. This must be paid for by Wednesday 9 December 2015.

Students must also pay all outstanding debts to the University; including debts to the library, as well as other fees. Your parchment and academic transcript 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 early December, please ensure you read this carefully as it will contain important on the day information. If you have not received a confirmation letter by Friday 11 December 2015 contact Flinders Connect phone 1300 FLINDERS (+61 1300 3546 3377) or Ask Flinders.


Step 4 - Academic Dress and Tickets: If you are hiring academic dress from the University, you can collect and return it from Sturt North Wing in room N332 at Flinders University (building 2 on the campus map, near car park 14).
