You can graduate at the end of the semester when you finish your studies at AUT. You don’t need to wait until the following semester to attend a graduation ceremony. This is handy if you have plans to leave Auckland after finishing your studies.
You do not need to wait for your final semester results before you apply to graduate.
You have three graduation options:
If you attend a graduation ceremony, your qualification award documentation (transcript and parchment) will be presented to you then.
To be eligible to graduate, you must complete the application process.
The process is:
If you meet the requirements, and subject to the approval of examination boards and Academic Registry, you will be eligible to have your qualification granted.
Your name will be recommended to the Council of the University, which then grants the qualification.
The decision to grant the qualification, and the date of granting, is at the discretion of the University.
Your academic record will show the date of granting selected by the Council, regardless of if you attend the next graduation ceremony, or if you choose to defer to a later ceremony or graduate in absentia (not attend a ceremony).
