  • Guest tickets

    Guest tickets are limited to 2 per graduate

    Extra guest tickets

    So that we can ensure everyone can share the celebration with family or friends we have had to make the difficult decision to limit guest tickets to 2 per graduate.

    If there is available guest seating at any ceremony after ticketing closes, we will email all graduates attending. At that time, you will have the opportunity to purchase additional guest tickets.

    Please keep an eye on your inbox.

    To help us manage enquiries please do not request extra guest tickets as we are not able to release extra guest tickets for individual circumstances. Please wait for us to contact you with advice should extra guest tickets become available.

  • Gown hire and return

    You will be provided with use of your academic regalia free of charge. This is your cap, gown and faculty hood.

    All gowns will be dry cleaned and sanitised thoroughly between ceremonies.

    You will need to return your gown within 1 hour after your ceremony.

    I have my own gown, do I get a discount?

    You are welcome to wear your own gown, so long as it meets the Charles Sturt University Academic Regalia requirements.

    If your own gown does not meet these requirements, we can still provide you with use of a gown on the day. We will also provide you with your Faculty coloured hood on the day and your trencher (cap).

    Unfortunately, you do not get a discount. Your attendance fee does not include hire of your gown. This is a complementary service provided by Charles Sturt.

  • Refunds

    If your circumstances change and you are no longer able to attend your graduation ceremony, you can get a full refund or update your attendance, so long as ticketing has not closed.

    1. Go to your ticket confirmation email
    2. Select modify my ticket
    3. Request a refund

    If ticketing has closed, you will not be able to refund your ticket. See full terms and conditions here.

  • What COVID safety precautions are in place with gowning?

    All gowns will be dry cleaned after each use so you can be assured you are wearing a sanitised garment.

    To limit contact, staff will act as flight attendants to direct you on how to don your academic gowning.

    All trenchers are brand new, you get to keep this.

  • 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.
