Outstanding debts
All monies owed to the University, including overdue student loans and library fines, must be paid before you can complete your degree. Please ensure outstanding amounts are paid at least seven weeks before graduation.

Please contact Campus Central to discuss any outstanding debts.

After your eligibility to graduate has been assessed by Campus Central you will receive an email to your student email account from the Graduations Office inviting you to register for your graduation. All registration is completed online through myGraduation.

To access myGraduation:

  • login to myUniSA
  • navigate to my Academic Record
  • select Graduations
  • Select Go to myGraduation

Name details
The parchment you receive is a legal document, it is important that your name is spelt correctly and in the correct order (as it appears on your passport, birth certificate or marriage certificate). Once your parchment has been issued, it cannot be reissued with a name change at a later date. You will be able to check you name via myParchment within the myGraduation website. You can also access myParchment from within myUniSA at anytime throughout your studies. If you find a mistake on your parchment, enter the correction online. In some cases, Campus Central will contact you to provide documentary evidence before processing the changes.

Academic dress hire
All graduands participating in the ceremony are required to wear academic dress appropriate for the award they are receiving. As most graduands do not have their own academic dress, the University provides a hiring service at a cost of $50.00 (including GST), you can book the hire through the myGraduation website. The fee will show as an invoice on myUniSA approximately 30 working days before your Graduation Ceremony.  Prompt payment of this fee will ensure your academic dress is available at graduation. You collect your gown at the venue on the day of the ceremony.
