Arriving for your graduation ceremony


You need to arrive at your grauation ceremony at the time shown on the myInformation page in myGraduation to ensure you can register, be gowned, and participate in the graduand briefing, all of which are essential to ensuring your graduation runs smoothly. It will also help us to ensure your name is read in the correct order, and that you receive the right parchment.

Ushers will direct you to the registration area. Please do not jeopardise the success of the ceremony for you and your fellow students by arriving late. Unfortunately late arrivals may not be able to participate in the ceremony.


After you have registered and received your seating ticket, please proceed to the gowning room. UniSA staff will provide you with directions. Gowns are available in various sizes and our staff will assist you with sizing. You will also wear a hood or stole in the colour of your academic discipline, and a mortarboard if appropriate.

Graduand briefing

Approximately one hour before your ceremony you will be asked to enter the auditorium and be seated in presentation order (separate from your guests). You will then be given a ceremony briefing so you know what to expect during the ceremony, and what you will need to do.

Further information about your graduation ceremony is available in myGraduation, then myInformation, or please visit the ceremony information online.
