Attend a ceremony
If eligible, you will be invited to register to attend a graduation ceremony in Perth or at one of our global campus locations. Check your invitation OC to register by the published deadline.
At the ceremony
Your guests are welcome to sit anywhere in the guest area behind you. Priority seating is reserved for elderly people and wheelchair access.
Entry to the venue is by ticket only. Please ensure your guests keep their tickets with them.
You can purchase light refreshments before, but not during, the graduation ceremony. Light snacks and drinks are available after the ceremony.
If attending your ceremony, you must wear approved Curtin academic regalia. After you have completed your online registration, you will be redirected to order your regalia online.
If you are attending a graduation ceremony in Perth, Kalgoorlie or Singapore you can hire or purchase Curtin academic regalia from our official provider GFP Graduations. Information regarding regalia hire for ceremonies at other locations will be provided by your campus.
After you have completed your registration via the graduations channel in OASIS, you will be directed to the GFP Graduations website to order your regalia.
If you are not attending your ceremony and would like to purchase or hire regalia, or for more information please contact GFP Graduations.
When you register to attend a ceremony for graduation you will be directed to order your regalia. Select ‘own’ against each regalia item you have. If the degree you have completed is a higher level or in another discipline you will need to purchase a new sash.
