Graduate in absentia and attend a 2022 ceremony

To support students getting their academic statement soon after completing their programs, HE students who finish their study in semesters 1, 2 and 3 of 2021 will be automatically granted graduation in absentia. Students will be invited to attend the 2022 RMIT Vietnam Graduation ceremony in SGS campus and Hanoi. 

Students will need to apply to graduate in absentia and pay the fees to receive their hard-copy testamur (optional). Please note that students who have a debt to RMIT will not be able to graduate or receive their testamur until the debt is cleared. 

RMIT University will revisit this process next year and amend if need.

Step 8: Make sure that your personal email account is up to date so you continue to get communications about your application confirmation as well as your digital academic statements via My eQuals.  

* If you do not apply to graduate in absentia, you will automatically graduate in absentia at the end of the month that your school confirms you have completed your program. In this case, the name order and personal email will be set as default.

Digital academic statement

You will confer (graduate) at the end of the month that your school confirms you have completed your program. The digital academic statements, including testamur, transcript and AHEGS, are issued on the second working day of the following month. You will then automatically be given access to your digital academic statements including transcript, testamur and AHEGS on My Equals

Hard copy testamur 

From July 2020, students graduating in absentia will receive their digital testamur online via My eQuals and will not be issued a hard copy testamur. If you would like to order a hard copy testamur, you can purchase it online at a cost of AUD55 (including postage). 

You will receive an email advising you on how to access your digital academic statements and how to order your hard copy testamur (optional) once the digital documents are available. 

Please note that: 

  • You can only order the hard copy after your digital testamur is available. 

  • There may be a delay in delivery times due to disrupted mailing services. It might take up to 12 weeks for international shipping (from RMIT Melbourne to your personal mailing address). 

Loss of access to RMIT systems

Up to 24 hours after you are conferred (in absentia), you will lose access to student email account and all systems such as Canvas. This is a legal requirement  for RMIT.  Before then, make sure you transfer the content of RMIT student emails to your personal email account, and download any course materials or other important information stored on RMIT systems.
