Celebrate from home

Congratulations to our graduating students!

While we aren't holding graduation ceremonies at the moment, thousands of Charles Sturt students are still finishing their degrees.

We can't wait to celebrate with you at a future graduation ceremony, but in the meantime, here are some ways you can celebrate from home.

Everything you need for an at-home graduation ceremony

  • Immerse yourself in a virtual graduation experience

    If you're a #CharlesSturtGrad, immerse yourself in a virtual graduation experience with our Instagram filter. All you have to do is:

    1. Go to @CharlesSturtUni on your smartphone
    2. Tap the smiley next to our IGTV
    3. Take your pic and tag #CharlesSturtGrad

    Try on my graduation cap

    Personalise your Instagram stories with our graduation stickers. Just search for "Charles Sturt grad" in your sticker library.

  • Your graduation program

    At graduation ceremonies, you would normally receive a graduation program. This booklet contains the names of your fellow graduates and well wishes from the Charles Sturt Community.

    Download your program

  • Graduation packs and memorabilia

    Charlies Store and Charles Sturt Winery have created special Graduation Packs for those who are celebrating from home.

    You can either select one of our pre-made packs, or you can create your own packs of Charles Sturt merchandise including our graduation bears (with matching faculty hood), pens, socks, cups and hoodies.

    Or you may just want to celebrate with your favourite drop from Charles Sturt wineries.

  • Hire or purchase your graduation cap, gown and hood

    All graduates who attend a ceremony are provided with academic regalia on the day of their ceremony. There is no need to specially purchase or hire your academic regalia unless it’s for your own use outside of your graduation ceremony.

    Purchase or hire your graduation cap, gown and hood (also known as your regalia), so that you can celebrate with all the gear!

Information for graduating students

  • What do I need to do to prepare for graduation?

    If you are graduating soon, you need to do is make sure your contact details are up-to-date.


    We need this information so that we can:

    • Keep you up-to-date with graduation ceremonies
    • Post your graduation certificate to you in the mail

    For students graduating in December, you need to update these details by grade release.


    Check contact details

  • How do I get my graduation certificate?

    Your graduation certificate is called a testamur. Once your award has been conferred (this means you have officially graduated), we will post your testamur to you in the mail.

    Testamurs are now being sent to domestic students via Registered Post. This means you will need to sign for your testamur when it's delivered to you. If you're not available to sign for it, you will need to pick it up at the post office. It may take 1-3 weeks for your testamur to arrive. If documents are returned to Charles Sturt you may be charged a fee for us to resend them to you.

    We will post to the mailing address on your student record.

    Check contact details

  • Can I access digital versions of my graduation documents?

    Yes.

    Within the week of your final grades being published, we will release a completed transcript via My eQuals. You can use this for employment or further study.

    Next, once your award has been conferred, you'll receive digital copies of your testamur and AHEGS through My eQuals in addition to your printed testamur being posted to you.

  • What if I'm moving house and changing my address soon?

    If you plan on moving house shortly after you complete your study, please update your mailing address before the end of session to a more reliable postal address (perhaps a friend or your parents address), so that you will definitely receive your testamur.

    Check contact details

  • Can I still graduate if I have a late grade in my last session due to the impacts of COVID-19?

    If your grades are late as a result of COVID-19 (say, if you have to complete practicals and workplace learning at a later date), we will graduate you as soon as you have completed all of the requirements of your course. To help graduate students as soon as possible, we are conducting monthly conferrals, so there will be an opportunity to graduate on a monthly basis.

    Please see all upcoming conferral dates under "I won't be attending". These are the official graduation dates.

Can we help you find what you’re looking for?
