Eligibility

Winter Graduation Round

Eligibility Requirements

Students who have satisfactorily met their course requirements by the conclusion of Semester 1 typically graduate through the Winter Graduation Round.

  • If you are sitting a Deferred Ordinary Examination (DO) or a Supplementary Examination at the conclusion of Semester 1 it is likely that the exam and marking period will be within the guidelines set for eligibility. Therefore if you pass your deferred or supplementary exam and are eligible then it is likely that you will graduate through the Winter Graduation Round.
  • If you are awaiting cross-institutional results from another university and they have not been finalised by the middle of July, you will NOT graduate in the Winter Graduation Round.
  • If after receiving your examination results you wish to apply for a change of assessment (e.g. with an Honours level, or grade of pass) then it is highly unlikely that you will graduate in the next round of ceremonies, as the assessment process usually exceeds the cut-off date for entry into a ceremony.
  • If you are completing your study in the Winter Study Periods, excluding Winter School (late), then you may be eligible to graduate through the Winter Graduation Round provided your result publication date in July and you have satisfactorily met the course requirements. Note, you may receive an Ineligibility Notification after Semester 1 result release, however you will be re-allocated to a graduation ceremony following the publication of your results. Check the Key Dates page for result publication dates and contact your Faculty or School for more information.

Please contact your Faculty Office should you have any queries in relation to your eligibility to graduate.

Summer Graduation Round

Eligibility Requirements

Students who have satisfactorily met their course requirements by the conclusion of Semester 2 typically graduate through the Summer Graduation Round.

  • If you are awaiting cross-institutional results from another university and they have not been finalised by the end of November, you will NOT graduate in Summer Graduation Round.
  • If you are sitting a Deferred Ordinary Examination (DO) or a Supplementary Exam at the conclusion of Semester 2, because of the timing of these examinations, you will NOT graduate in the Summer Graduation Round.
  • If you are completing an additional assessment within your School at the conclusion of Semester 2, because of the timing of these assessments, you will NOT graduate in Summer Graduation Round.
  • If you are completing a Summer or Spring School unit before the December ceremonies, as the results are released in January after the Summer Graduation Round, you will NOT graduate in December.
  • If after receiving your examination results you wish to apply for a change of assessment (e.g. with an Honours level, or grade of pass) then it is highly unlikely that you will graduate in the next round of ceremonies because the assessment process usually exceeds the cut-off date for entry into a ceremony.

Please contact your Faculty Office should you have any queries in relation to your eligibility to graduate.
