Graduation Email

Students who are eligible to graduate (those who have completed the course requirements and those who are likely to complete the course prior to graduation), would receive an email in September 2018 inviting them to apply for graduation. If you expect to complete the course but have not received the email by end of September 2018, you are required to contact HE-SSO VIT (email: A graduation invitation email (to your VIT Student email address) is sent for you to register. If you are having difficulties with logging in, please contact us immediately.

It is important that you should register for the graduation (even if you choose to be conferred in absentia).

Below is a checklist of things you must do prior to Graduation:

  • Pay any outstanding fee dues before 1-Oct-2018

VIT welcomes student's family members to attend the graduation ceremony as guests to witness the conferral award during this very special and official event. Up to TWO guest tickets are issued upon request free of cost.

If you are requesting for additional guest tickets, we would advise you of the availability before 18-Nov-2018. Graduation tickets can be collected a week before the ceremony.
  • Supporting Documentation for International Student Guest Visa: If you have guests visiting from outside Australia, they may need evidence of your graduation attendance to apply for a visa. In this case please apply for Invitation Letter using the link provided in the Graduation email.

Graduate without attending a ceremony (in absentia)

If you have completed your course and are not able to attend a graduation ceremony, you need to request to graduate 'in absentia' to have your name included in the awardees in the graduation and have your Testamur (certificate) mailed. Those opting to receive their award in absentia should ensure that you update your postal address in the online form.

Please note that the certificates will be posted before 31-Jan-2019.

If you still don't apply, we'll automatically graduate you in absentia.

We do not encourage students receiving in absentia to walk in for collection of degrees for operational reasons.
