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

Waiariki's graduation events provide an opportunity for your family and friends to join Waiariki in acknowledging your academic success.

What you need to know

You are eligible to attend graduation when you

  • successfully complete a qualification in 2015
  • successfully complete a qualification in summer semester 2015-2016
  • pay all fees and fines in full
  • apply before the deadline!

Remember tickets are limited!

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

Apply before the deadline!

If you are expecting to successfully complete your qualification/s at the end of Semester 2, 2015 or Summer Semester 2015-2016, and you are waiting for your study results, you are still responsible for applying to graduate before the closing date (10 December 2015) as late applications will not be accepted. Waiariki will notify you in the event you are not eligible to graduate.

Why must you apply to graduate?

Waiariki requires all graduands to follow an application procedure and meet the deadlines in order to:

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

It is vital that Waiariki has your correct contact details. If you have moved or changed your contact details, please complete the Change of Personal Details form.
