Next Steps

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


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.

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 September, 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 25 September 2015, please contact the Graduations Office


Step 4 - Academic Dress and Tickets: Academic Dress and tickets must be collected from and returned to the university. Dates and Times will be available closer to the ceremony. You may wish to bring a bag or coat hanger. If you are unable to collect academic dress yourself, please send a friend or relative to do so on your behalf.

All academic dress must be returned by 7pm on the day of your ceremony. A late fee will be charged if not returned on time.

Guest tickets are collected with academic dress. Please check the Student Systems for your number of guest tickets you have been allocated.
