December 2014 Conferring of Awards

From 11 September potential graduands will be identified and assessed for Graduation. You will be able to check your ISIS account from this date to ensure you are being assessed. If you believe you should be identified as a potential graduand and cannot see this reflected in ISIS after 11 September, please contact the Graduations Office as soon as possible. ISIS will reflect the outcome of your assessment in October, and if you are approved you will be emailed a Graduation Invitation to your university student email account by 24 October. Students with an inactive university email account will be contacted separately for an appropriate forwarding email address.

Academic Regalia Hire

The University has recently reviewed the ANU Conferral of Awards Ceremonies and the University Dress Orders. This has resulted in a change to the ANU hood colours and reduced the cost of hiring academic regalia. It is now mandatory for graduands to wear academic dress to their graduation ceremony. If you are not wearing appropriate regalia when you register your attendance on the day of your Graduation, you will not be permitted to participate in the ceremony. You may hire your regalia from the University Vendor, Southam Studios. Students who might need assistance to participate in the ceremony should contact the Examinations and Graduations Office.

Live streaming of the December 2014 Conferral of Awards ceremonies

The University will be live streaming all Conferral of Awards ceremonies this December. They can be accessed from the graduation day page closer to the date of the ceremonies.
