Q: Is it required for graduating students to apply for graduation?
A: No, students do not have to apply for graduation. When students are about to reach the expected graduation date and after the grade for all courses taken have been released, the Graduate Panel and the Graduate School will arrange to conduct graduation assessment for the students. If the student fulfils all graduation requirement of the programme (including course work, etc.), he/she will be recommended for graduation.
Q: After completion of study, is it necessary to apply for certifying letter and/or transcript?
A: A complimentary set of certifying letter and full transcript (student copy) will be sent to student upon request by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org after the recommendation for graduation is endorsed by the Graduate Panel. Students who wish to obtain additional copy of transcript and/or certifying letter may submit applications at the section "Request Official Documents".
Q: How long does it take to receive the complimentary set of certifying letter and full transcript?
A: Normally, the complimentary set of certifying letter and full transcript will reach students about 2 months after fulfilment of all graduation requirements (i.e. after release of grades for all courses taken).
Q: Is it possible to speed up the graduation process or obtain the proof of graduation sooner?
A: The Graduate School will process the graduation assessment and issue the proof of graduation to students as soon as possible. Frequent enquiry to the Graduate School and Graduate Panel on the progress may slow down the process.
Q: How will the complimentary set of certifying letter and transcript be sent?
A: Normally, the complimentary set of certifying letter and transcript will be sent to students by EMS mail. To ensure proper delivery, please update the contact information to the Graduate School.
Q: What will happen if I am unable to fulfil all graduation requirements by the expected graduation date?
A: Students who are unable to graduate will be informed of the result of graduation assessment accordingly. Students who are required to continue with their studies will be asked to renew their student ID card.
Q: When will the graduation certificate be issued? How will it be sent to me?
A: The graduation certificates will be issued after the Congregation which is held in November/December each year. Students will be informed of the details of Congregation, graduation ceremony and collection of graduation certificate in October/November.
