ANU Graduation 2021


Important Update: July 2 2021

The University has taken the decision to cancel Conferring of Awards ceremonies scheduled for Friday 16th July, 2021.

Further information can be found in the VC's update from 2 July:

"Due to the uncertainty in our region at this time, we have made the difficult decision to cancel mid-July graduations this year. With the state border closures affecting travel to and from the ACT, it adds another level of complexity for many of our students who are currently interstate. Our main priority is the health and safety of our community. Our graduands will still graduate in absentia so this will not affect their status as a graduate from 16 July. We will keep our students updated and we hope to be able to invite them back soon for a celebratory ceremony when it is safe to do so. I understand this is extremely disappointing and we will do all we can to ensure your academic achievements are rightly acknowledged and celebrated."


Frequently Asked Questions

Will I still graduate?

You will still graduate in absentia on 16 July so your status as a graduate will be unaffected. Your testamur, Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement [AHEGS] and academic transcript will be available electronically via My eQuals. We will also post a hard-copy of your testamur to your mailing address registered in ISIS.  

Will I get a refund for services I have already paid for?

For our students who have already paid for regalia hire through Reeds Graduation Services, we are working directly with them to arrange refunds. Please note you do not have to follow up a refund directly with RGS - ANU will do that on your behalf.   

Will I be able to attend a ceremony in the future? 

We hope to be able to welcome you back to campus later in the year for a graduation celebration when safe to do so.
