Ceremony dates and times

Graduation ceremonies are held during Semester 1 and then again during Semester 2.  Timing of the 2020 graduation ceremonies is still to be confirmed.

Please contact the Graduation Office (click here to submit an online contact request form) to make arrangements for collection or postage of your testamur if you do not want to attend a graduation ceremony.

Unfortunately you do not have the option to attend a ceremony after you have received your certificate/testamur.

December 2019

When your final grades have been published, your eligibility to graduate will be assessed and your student record will be updated in the student management system.

You will be sent an email from Reed Graduation Services when the online portal is open, inviting you to login and submit your graduation attendance / non attendance details for the next graduation event.

Please update your contact details in MySC to include a current alternate email address to ensure you receive graduation communication as your student email address will not be used for this communication.

If you do not want to attend a ceremony and require your testamur before the portal opens, please contact the graduation office via the online contact request form, to make arrangements.

Please note: All graduation attendance or non-attendance details must be submitted via the Reed Graduation Services portal.  The portal will open on Monday 23 September 2019 and will close on Wednesday 9 October 2019.
