1. Go into SOLS
2. Click on Graduation, then Graduation Application
3. Click on the box "Review"
4. Click on the box "Change Attendance"
5. In Part A, click on the box relevant to you (I wish to attend / or I do not wish to attend)
6. Click continue

Note: students are not able to change their ceremony to another time in the year, unless under exceptional circumstances (work, holidays etc are not considered exceptional circumstances).

Paying your graduation fee

The Graduation Fee of $160 will be applied on 15 July to students attending their ceremony in July 2019. There are a number of ways to pay your grad fee: 

  • Log into SOLS, click on Fees, then Fee Statement, then click on the link for ePayment

Students have until 21 July 2019 to pay their graduation fee.

Your official academic documents

UOW is now issuing digital academic documents to graduating students via My eQuals - you should expect to receive them by July 26, 2019 for students graduating in July 2019. Through My eQuals, students will receive certified digital versions of their testamur (certificate), transcript, Australian Higher Education Statement (AHEGS) and UOWx Record/Award (where relevant). Find out more about My eQuals here

You will receive a hardcopy testamur which will be posted to you via DHL (or another third party) by the end of August. Please ensure your postal address is correct in your graduation application as your testamur will be sent to this address.
