After your graduation ceremony - Section contents
After your graduation ceremony, there are a few things you can do on the day and months ahead to ensure you are ready to continue with the next stage of your journey as a graduate.
Returning your graduation regalia
Regalia must be returned to the collection point within two hours after the conclusion of your ceremony. If you do not return your regalia on time, you may also be invoiced with a $300 replacement fee.
Receive your academic statements
Your free academic transcript will be posted to the preferred contact address 2-3 weeks after you have finished your studies. If you need a transcript straight away, you can visit Stop 1 to purchase additional copies on the spot.
Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS)
You will also receive the AHEGS via post soon after you graduate. The AHEGS is designed to assist in both national and international recognition of Australian qualifications.
If you need additional copies of your transcript or AHEGS, or other types of academic statements, you can purchase these using the eCommerce website.
