Congratulations on completing your studies! You're about to achieve a major life milestone by graduating from Victoria University.

Most students don't need to apply to graduate – we'll advise you once you've completed your course requirements and are eligible.

You can then choose to attend a formal graduation ceremony, or collect your Testamur (award/certificate) at your convenience (see our Awards and Testamurs Procedure).

You need to apply to graduate if you completed your course before 2015 or wish to exit with a lower (alternate) award. Information on how to apply in these circumstances is detailed on this page.

Higher Education students

You are eligible to graduate if:

  • you have completed and passed all assessment requirements for the course
  • your results are officially published
  • you have no outstanding fees or fines.

When your College confirms your completion, you'll receive a notification of completion via email.

You'll then receive a graduation invitation approximately six weeks before the next round of ceremonies.

TAFE/VE students

You are eligible to graduate if:

  • you have completed and passed all assessment requirements for the course
  • your results are officially published
  • you have no outstanding fees or fines
  • you have a valid Unique Student Identifier (USI).

You'll receive a notification of completion via email.

Notifications are sent on the 22nd of each month, followed by your Testamur and academic transcript via post within 10 working days.

Early/alternate exit

You'll need to apply to graduate if you are enrolled in a course and want to exit with a lower award.

Use the  application for an award - alternate exit form.

Completed before 2015

If you completed a course prior to 2015 and haven't graduated you need to:

  1. lodge a query through ASKVU
  2. provide your course details and completion date
  3. enquire if you are eligible to graduate.
