NOT YET REGISTERED FOR COURSE COMPLETION AND EVENT?
Visit Register to graduate (opens in a new window) in the first instance, for guidance on how to register

IMPORTANT:
If you are enrolling into your final session or in your final session of study (prior to deadlines), it’s time to register for course completion! Applications to register close before your study session finishes, so do not wait until you've completed your course to register, as this will delay your (earliest) possible completion and event date. Please register early, do not wait until finish your exams, you need to register in your last session of study do it when you are enrolling in your last session (the registration will not stop you from registering regardless if you are complete or not).  If capacity is reached for any round, we will close registrations early with no exceptions for inclusion.

TIPS:
Use a laptop or desktop to register (not a mobile device)

Immediately after registering, check you have received your MyGraduation Receipt to your student email account. Don’t forget to check your junk/clutter/spam folders in case the email has not landed in your inbox. 

No MyGraduation Receipt email = No Registration!

WHEN TO SEEK ASSISTANCE:
If you register through MySR and do not receive a ‘MyGraduation’ receipt to your student email immediately, then your registration attempt has not been successful. Try to register again, and/or contact us without delay via email (from your student account), to graduations@westernsydney.edu.au.

If you are not sure if you should register now, or have any questions about the registration process, contact us via email (from your student account) to graduations@westernsydney.edu.au.  Your academic is not responsible for the timelines and may not be aware of them all, any questions relating to these timelines must be from our team, your academic is unable to adjust these timelines.
