Graduation certificates

Find out when you will get your graduation certificate, and how to get them sent overseas or replaced. Graduation certificates used to be called graduation scrolls.

When you get your graduation certificate

If you graduate at a graduation ceremony, you will be presented with your graduation certificate during the ceremony.

If you graduate in absentia from a ceremony, your certificate will be posted to you after the graduation ceremony.

If you graduate via an Academic Board Meeting, your certificate will be posted to you after the meeting.

Sending graduation certificates overseas

If you live overseas or want to have your certificate delivered to an overseas address, you must pay a courier fee. Your certificate will not be sent until the courier fee has been paid. Certificates are sent via DHL.

If your certificate is being sent to a country where English is not the first language, you will need to provide the address written in English and also in the language of the country it is being delivered to.
