Graduation at La Trobe University

If you’re eligible to graduate, we will email a graduation invitation (to your La Trobe email address) a few weeks before your round of ceremonies. Find upcoming graduation ceremony dates here.

If you have passed your course and do not want to attend a graduation ceremony, you need to request to graduate ‘in absentia’ and have your testamur (certificate) mailed to you or you can choose to collect it from ASK La Trobe or your local Student Administration office.

Academic Transcript and Completion Letter

You will receive a complimentary academic transcript once your completion is confirmed. You can also order your copies of your academic transcript online.

If you need a letter to confirm your completion status for permanent residency applications, or your completion details, place an online order by Thursday 11 July so you will receive a course completion letter printed in the week Semester 1 results are released (week ending Friday 19 July).
