Course completion and graduation

Eligibility to graduate

Students need to have satisfied all course requirements in order to graduate and receive an academic award from the university as outlined in sections 12 and 13 of the UTS Student and Related Rules.

In addition, a student will not be eligible to graduate if they are involved in any student misconduct or appeals proceedings as outlined in section 16 of the rules.

When enrolling in their final year or session, students need to ensure their program of study will satisfy requirements in accordance with the required timeframe so as not to delay their graduation.


Students need to ensure they are aware of the essential graduation information, ceremony schedule and registration timelines that the university communicates to graduands via their UTS email account or other contact details provided in My Student Admin. Failure to update contact details or read notifications are not accepted as reasons for being unaware of matters so notified (see rule 2.3).

Full details regarding the steps required before graduation, including key dates, are available via the graduation webpage.

If students have any questions about their eligibility to graduate, course requirements, level of award, graduation registration or any other matters, they should contact a UTS Student Centre.
