How to Graduate Guide
The below video includes all the key information you need to know about your Graduation Ceremony.
There is no cost to yourself or guests to attend your graduation ceremony. However, tickets for guests will not be issued and seating is based on a first in, first served basis.
When to arrive
It is expected that graduates arrive two hours prior to the ceremony commencement time to allow time for parking, gown collection and photography prior to registration.
Parking around the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre can be limited so please factor in extra time for parking or arrange to arrive by taxi or other rideshare options.
It is recommend that graduates wear clothing that is neat and smart. You’ll need shoes that are suitable for stairs and carpet. Thongs, shorts, t-shirts, jeans and ripped clothing are not considered appropriate.
Guests are to dress smart casual.
Hire/Purchase your Academic Dress
It is compulsory to wear JCU approved academic dress at ceremonies. You can hire a JCU approved gown here.
Upon arrival please collect your gown if you haven’t done so prior to the ceremony. If you have a JCU approved gown, staff will be available to assist with dressing you.
Before you register on the day, you must be wearing your full academic dress. Quote your registration number at the registration desk to receive your graduation card. Please keep this card with you at all times until you reach the ceremony marshal on stage.
Graduates who register late may not be presented in their correct order on stage. If the ceremony has already commenced it is possible that late graduates will not be able to graduate on the day.
There are no facilities available to leave any personal items (handbags/mobiles etc.). All your personal belongings must be left with guests, or you may consider clothing with a pocket under your gown.
Cultural Sashing Ceremony
Aboriginal and Torres Strait graduates who have identified their heritage on Student One will be presented with a JCU Cultural Sash at informal ceremonies prior to each graduation ceremony. An invitation with details will be emailed to recipients prior to the ceremony date.
The graduation ceremony will be live streamed via JCU’s YouTube channel.
It is anticipated the ceremony will run for approximately two hours.
