Eligibility

To graduate from RMIT University Vietnam you need to ensure that you have:

  • Met all academic requirements for your program
  • No missing results or credit transfers
  • No financial debt owing to the University

Apply to graduate

RMIT Vietnam students in diploma and degree programs are invited to graduate. However, graduation does not occur automatically when you complete a program of study and you need to apply to graduate in your final year. If you believe you are eligible to graduate, you are responsible for submitting an Application to Graduate by logging into this link.

If you do not wish to attend the ceremony, you are still required to complete an application to graduate and indicate that you wish to confer your degree in absentia. The term 'graduate in absentia' originates from the Latin word for absence (absentia). It simply means that you graduate without attending an official ceremony. In this case, you will receive your official testamur (certificate) from the Student Administration Office

Your transcript is an official record of your studies at RMIT University, across all program/s. It documents your programs, courses, results and any exemptions granted or withdrawals from courses after the census date. When applicable, transcripts include details of completion, conferral (graduation) and University-awarded prizes and recognition. 

  • Completion transcript: is a transcript generated after a student has officially completed their program. As soon as the School confirms completion of your program, you will qualify for a Completion transcript. This will show you have met the requirements to graduate and will assist you with employability in the period before conferral/ graduation. Completion transcript has gone digital via My eQuals.
