Need an Extension on an Hand-in Assignment?

It is expected that all students submit their assignments on time and manage the balance between your studies and other activities (such as employment, family life etc).  We know at times circumstances can prevent students from meeting the due date for an assignment such as:

- needing to work an unexpected shift

- a family member suddenly falling sick and needing care

- a last-minute equipment break down that prevented completion of the assignment

- a temporary illness, such as a migraine, making it difficult to focus on completing the assignment.

If circumstances prevent you from meeting the due date, you can apply for an extension for up to 48 hours (one extension per assignment) by completing the Extension Request Form. If you require further information please access and read the Extension Guidelines for Students or contact your class teacher.

December Graduation Registration Currently Open

Registrations open until 5pm Wednesday 16 October 2019. Do not wait until you’ve completed your course, register before the closing date.  No MyGraduation Receipt email = No Registration (if you are experiencing trouble contact graduations@westernsydney.edu.au prior to registrations closing).  Ceremonies will be held on the Parramatta (South) campus Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 December 2019.

Please Read all Details to Avoid Missing Important Information

December timelines are extremely tight and many tasks need to be finalised prior to you receiving eligibility/ceremony details.  By completing your registration for December, you are confirming that you are aware of and accept the below conditions. If these conditions are not acceptable to you, do not apply/or update for December graduation.

  • Please check your MySR, if your award appears with the option to select December you are able to apply.
  • If your student record is not finalised by the advertised timelines regardless of the reason, you will be declined (please do not request special consideration).
  • Honours students studying in Spring Session are not able to be included as there is not enough time from results release to actual ceremonies to have details finalised / appealed.
  • Confirmation of your eligibility to graduate (and if eligible ceremony details) will be available only 1 week prior to graduation

NOTE: If you are intending on inviting family and friends to your graduation this short time frame could be expensive to book flights and accommodation with such short notice, and also prove problematic to arrange visas for guests visiting from overseas – not enough notice, apply for a future round

  • All details are to be finalised as per timelines and prior to receiving eligibility / ceremony details
  • You will be required to make your RSVP payment before being advised of eligibility to graduate or if eligible, ceremony details. NOTE: if for any reason you are not eligible to graduate, any RSVP payment you have made will be transferred to April of the following year (or a full refund if requested)
  • If you are deemed not eligible you will be moved to the next round, if you are eligible you will graduate in December (if you have not deferred in writing prior to the advertised deadlines)
  • Double degree with Bachelor of Laws – you will only be assessed if you have already graduated from the first component of your double degree, OR, you are eligible to graduate from both components.

For example, if you are graduating from Bachelor of Business and Commerce/Bachelor of Laws, then you will need to have graduated from the Business component previously, to enable you to graduate from your Law component in the December round. Alternatively, you have completed both components and will graduate from both awards in the December round.

Only Law double degrees are considered for December and with the above conditions. No other Bachelor double degree awards are included in December

Any activity that results in a delay to your final results leads to an automatic decline for graduation – regardless of the reason. Such activities include (but are not limited to)

  • Sitting a deferred exam
  • Sitting a supplementary exam
  • Submitting an additional assessment
  • Submitting documentation for special consideration
  • Misconduct hearings (regardless of final outcome)
  • Your results are not finalised by the advertised timelines
  • You are currently enrolled
  • You have outstanding grades
  • Professional placement / Industrial Experience processing/grades are not complete
  • You have advanced standing or course transfer details still pending
  • Cross Institutional details are not finalised
  • Your post census miscellaneous unit is not finalised and transferred by the advertised timelines
  • You have not met course requirements by the advertised timelines
  • Delays in processing marks
  • School has not uploaded your result as per results upload date
  • Course variation not finalised on student record
  • Enrolment issues not finalised

Other reasons may include

  • Submitted documentation for a review of grade (If you are applying for a Review of Grade and have a pass mark making you eligible to graduate, you must email graduations@westernsydney.edu.au immediately 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 – if it is able to be changed)
  • Outstanding financial debts to the University (library fines, study fees, encumbrance of any type)
  • Anything outstanding on your student record as of results upload (regardless who’s error /delay this may be from, timelines are not able to be adjusted)

Due to the short turnaround times, confirmation of eligibility and ceremony details are only available 1 week before ceremonies (it is not possible to provide this information earlier). If this is too short notice for you, please register and/or defer (as per deadlines) to April 2020 graduation round.
