​Deferring your ceremony

Deferring your attendance at a ceremony does not delay your official graduation.

  • Select a future semester to attend a ceremony (maximum 12 months following your graduation).
  • Your award will be conferred at a ceremony in the current graduation period.
  • Your testamur (graduation certificate) will be mailed to you via registered post after all ceremonies for the current graduation period have concluded.

How do I defer?

When you register to graduate in Student Connect, select the future semester in which you would like to attend a ceremony.

The Graduations Office will contact you via your personal email approximately two months prior to the ceremony date that you have selected to confirm attendance and finalise payment of the ceremony fee.

Make sure that your mailing address and personal email are correct in Student Connect so that you don’t miss any important communications about graduation. You will lose access to Student Connect once you graduate, so please email any changes to your contact details to graduations@acu.edu.au.
