Registration

To have your registration to graduate assessed correctly, it is your responsibility to ensure:

  • you are enrolled in the correct course; 
  • your correct specialisations appear in your MySR;
  • all of your grades are correct and sitting under the correct course by the deadline, allowing processing time;
  • all outstanding fees and fines are paid by the deadline, allowing processing time;
  • all requirements for advanced standing, cross institutional study and course transfers are finalised by the deadline, allowing processing times. 

All units studied in Term 1 2017, Q2 2017 and Autumn session 2017 need to have grades finalised by close of business on Friday, 30 June 2017. If not finalised, your registration will be declined and you will be transferred to the following graduation round (April 2018).

If you have completed cross institutional studies, you will need to check that institutions result release date and contact graduations@westernsydney.edu.au to discuss options available.

Your eligibility to graduate in September 2017 will be confirmed by the Graduation Team only. Confirmation will be sent via an eligibility email to your student email account (dates above).

Sitting a deferred exam, supplementary exam or if you are required to submit an additional assessment, may result in a decline outcome if results are not finalised by the advertised deadlines. This also includes misconduct hearings or any activity that results in a delay to your final results.

If you are applying for a Review of Grade, you must email graduations@westernsydney.edu.au to move your registration to a future round. If you do not take this action and are deemed eligible to graduate, the result on your student record will be the result produced on your documentation and a charge will be incurred to have replacement documentation produced and original documentation returned.

If your RSVP payment (attending or in absentia) is not received by the due date, you will be charged $200 to attend graduation (hire regalia option). This includes an $80 late attendance payment fee.

Any variations to the graduation deadlines will be confirmed by the Graduation Team only. This will be communicated to your student email account or by an update to this website. If you have any questions, please contact the Graduation Team directly at graduations@westernsydney.edu.au as we cannot always guarantee that School staff and other business units will have the most up to date information in relation to graduation.
