December 2018

If you want to attend a ceremony at our December graduation event, being held at the Mt Helen campus, you do not need to anything else at this stage.  You will have the opportunity to submit your attendance information, and make payment after you have received an email from Reed Graduation Services.  Please ensure your contact details are kept up-to-date in My Student Centre.

Details and payment will need to be submitted before 31 October 2018.

If you do not want to attend a ceremony and would like to receive your certificate/testamur sooner, please submit this information via the Reed Graduation Services portal and arrangements will be made for postage or collection of your certificate/testamur.
