Here is a checklist of everything you need to do to make your graduation day run smoothly. Each link takes you to a page containing more detailed information.

1. Thesis

Have you deposited your thesis to UNSWorks? You should do this at least 4 weeks before your graduation date.

2. Your graduation details

Have you checked and updated them on myUNSW? It's important to let the Graduations Team know whether you're attending the ceremony, and to have all your personal and degree details up to date in the system.

3. Outstanding debts to UNSW

Have you paid them? If you don't clear all outstanding debts with the University, your graduation will be revoked/blocked. If you have paid them, have you advised the Graduations Team?

4. Graduation Fee

The $185 graduation fee includes:

  • Hire of your academic dress from the Arc Grad & Gift Shop
  • A souvenir trencher (or bonnet for PhD graduates)

  • Live stream and download link to a video of your ceremony
  • Guest tickets for your ceremony
  • Light refreshments after the ceremony

5. Tickets

6. Accessibility

Have you notified the Graduations Team of any special requirements you or your guests have?

7. Academic dress for the ceremony

The hire of academic dress is included in the graduation fee.
