Graduation

Graduation is a time to celebrate! Join us in celebrating your achievement.

Graduation 2018 will be held on Wednesday 28, and Thursday 29 March, at the Sir Howard Morrison Performing Arts Centre, Rotorua.

What you need to know

You are eligible to attend graduation when you:

  • successfully complete a qualification in 2017
  • successfully complete a qualification in summer semester 2017-2018
  • pay all fees and fines in full
  • apply before Friday, 8 December 2017 to get the early bird pricing, or
  • apply before Friday, 12 January 2018 (full cost)

Remember tickets are limited! Apply early to secure yours.

Graduation events provide an opportunity for your family and friends to join us in acknowledging your academic success.

All students who wish to accept their parchment at an awards ceremony must have applied to graduate. When you successfully complete a certificate, diploma, degree, or higher level qualification, you become a graduand and eligible to attend an awards ceremony.

Graduands must complete a graduation application so we can:

  • confirm your academic study results and ensure you have no debts owing;
  • process your request to graduate;
  • order your graduation regalia;
  • send your Graduation Handbook and requested tickets to your address; and
  • have your official parchment/s printed and ready for the ceremony.

It is vital that we have your current contact details and if these details have changed since you finished your studies, you will need to complete the Change of Personal Details form by clicking the link below.
