Registration

All students who anticipate receiving an award certificate in July 2014 should register using the online graduation registration tool (subject to the exceptions below).

Registration is essential even if you do not wish to attend the award ceremony.  Students will be invited to register via email approximately 3 months before the ceremonies.  Registration will open approximately 2 months before the ceremonies.

In addition, undergraduate full time students who register to graduate will also be entitled to receive a higher education achievement report (HEAR).  To find out more about HEAR please visit www.rgu.ac.uk/HEAR

Exceptions:

  • Students on linked degree/honours degree courses who have completed the ordinary degree stage of their course but who will proceed to the Honours year of the course in the next session.
  • Students on linked PGCert/PGDip/MSc courses should not graduate with a Postgraduate Diploma or Certificate if they are still continuing with a Masters level course.

If you do graduate at any of the above exit points then proceed immediately to the next stage, your first certificate will have to be returned and the graduation fee will be charged again at the next graduation opportunity.

If, however, you do not proceed as you originally planned then you should ensure that you make arrangements to register for the next ceremony.

Attending the Ceremony

A Registration invite email will be sent to you prior to the Summer graduation. Invites are sent to students' email addresses that have been logged with Student Records.

If you owe the University money you will not be permitted to graduate. You must clear any debts (including course fees, accommodation, parking fines and library arrears) with the Student Finance Officer or the Library before you can register.

Students will be invited by email to register for their award certificates (i.e. to graduate).  You should register as soon as possible after you receive graduation information.  Don't wait until you have received your results as this may be too late.  

Changing registration details

If you have already registered and paid your fee, but need to change any of your details, please fill out the Graduation details change form.

Guest ticket allocation

Because seating is limited, we allocate two guest tickets each (if requested during registration). Based on final numbers of graduating students we will allocate more where possible. Additional tickets requested will be allocated by ballot. Students do not need to order tickets for themselves.

Ticket allocations will be available approximately 10 days before the ceremony. Students can choose to collect tickets from the Student Help Point (location to be confirmed), or have tickets posted to a UK address.

Registration Fee

The registration fee is £40 and is due to be paid by all students receiving University awards.

Exceptions:

  • In-house training course, i.e. Postgraduate Certificate in Research Methods
  • Where indicated during the online graduation registration procedure

Where a fee is liable, the fee should be paid during the online registration by credit/debit card. Please note the registration process is not complete until payment of the required fee is received.
