COVID Impacts

Please check Macquarie's COVID response for the latest updates.

Conferring of degrees

Your conferral month is mentioned in your completion letter, which you will receive within 2 business days of your qualification date.

You will then be sent a Conferring of Degrees email approximately 4 weeks before your conferral date. Please note, this is not your graduation ceremony invitation (this will be sent to your student email address once your ceremony is confirmed). Conferral dates are based on University Council meeting dates. Eligible graduands are notified approximately 4 weeks prior to the relevant Council meeting date.

Digital documents are released on My eQuals and can take up to 2 weeks from your conferral date to be available. A notification email will be sent to your student email account when your graduation documents are able to be accessed.

Graduation ceremonies

If you wish to attend a future ceremony, your hard copy documents will need to be kept with the Graduations Team. A graduation ceremony invitation will be sent to your student email in the future so please check your student email periodically for more information as your email account will remain active.

If you do not wish to attend a future ceremony, please complete the Graduating in Absentia web form. You will not receive a graduation ceremony invitation if you elect to receive your hard copy documents.

If you have already paid for special delivery and you wish to attend a future ceremony, please submit an AskMQ enquiry.

2021/2022 Graduates

We will be inviting graduates from 2021 onwards in chronological order of your conferral date to accommodate those students who missed a ceremony due to COVID restrictions. Visit our Sydney graduation page for updated information. Once a schedule is confirmed, we will send an invitation to your student email account.
