Dear Colleagues,

In response to government advice regarding non-essential events of over 500 participants, the UOW graduation celebrations planned for the Wollongong Campus on 14-17 April 2020, and for Shoalhaven Campus graduates on 22 April 2020 are cancelled.

We have not taken this decision lightly as we recognise the inconvenience it will inevitably cause, however, promoting the health and safety of the community is our primary concern.

Students who were graduating at the April ceremonies at Wollongong and Shoalhaven campuses will receive their testamur through registered post.

The University understands the importance of formally celebrating this important milestone and will schedule a celebratory event for students unable to attend their graduation ceremony as soon as the elevated risks associated with COVID-19 outbreak have subsided.

Those students who are currently applying to graduate need to continue to do so. Completion of this application will enable us to continue the administration required for the conferral of your degree.

Students apply to graduate online as per our standard processes.

Thank you,

Damien Israel
Chief Operating Officer
