Deferring graduation

If you have opted to attend a graduation ceremony but can no longer attend, you need to advise the Graduation Office in writing at least 4 weeks prior to the ceremony. This can be done by sending an email to graduation@federation.edu.au No refunds will be given if less than four weeks notice is received.

You can only defer your graduation once. If you do not attend after deferring to the next ceremony, your testamur will be mailed to the address on your student record - please ensure your address is current on My Student Centre. No refunds will be given.

Refunds

If you have paid but cannot attend your ceremony and now wish to graduate In Absentia, your money (or part thereof) may be refunded, provided that the Graduation Office is advised in writing at least four weeks prior to the ceremony. If no advice is received prior to the graduation ceremony, your degree will be mailed to you. No refund will be issued as costs have already been incurred.

Changing your name details

The name used at graduation and printed on your testamur, will be the same as your enrolled name.  Any changes must be advised in writing with appropriate documentary evidence (ie. passport, birth certificate etc), and can be sent by email to graduation@federation.edu.au or by post to Graduation Office, SMB Campus, PO Box 663, Ballarat, VICTORIA  3353.
