Frequently Asked Questions
I finished studying in 2020, am I eligible to graduate?
Yes. Any student who completed their studies in 2020 is eligible to graduate.
I completed my studies prior to 2020 but was unable to attend a graduation ceremony. Can I attend one in 2021?
Yes. We encourage you to register to attend a graduation ceremony to celebrate your achievements.
GOTAFE regretfully needed to cancel the Shepparton and Werribee Graduation Ceremonies in 2020 due to the COVID-19 situation. This included the:
- Shepparton Graduation Ceremony, Wednesday 25th March
- Werribee Graduation Ceremony, Wednesday 15th April
We apologise for the inconvenience caused by these cancellations. If you were to attend one of these ceremonies, we would welcome you to come along to one of our graduations this year.
How do I register for a graduation ceremony?
I didn’t receive a graduation invite – can I still attend a ceremony?
If you completed your studies in 2020 you will be allowed to attend a graduation ceremony. It is important you register to secure a place at the graduation before reservations close. If you did not receive a graduation invitation, please notify your course trainer.
Is there a dress code for graduation?
Yes. Please dress in smart casual attire.
I won’t be able to attend a graduation ceremony – can my certificate be posted to me instead?
If you cannot attend a graduation ceremony, you will still receive your official course completion certificate in the mail in line with your graduating requirements. Attending a graduation ceremony does not impact whether or not you successfully complete a course.
How many guests can accompany me to my graduation?
Each graduating student can bring up to 2 guests. Places are limited, so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
If you would like to bring more than 2 guests, please tick the box to be added to our waiting list when you register your guests.
My graduation session is already full, can I go onto a wait list?
Yes, you should see a waitlist option under reservations page.
Where are the graduation ceremonies being held?
Graduation ceremonies will be held in Wangaratta, Shepparton, Seymour, Wallan and Benalla. Venue details will be provided leading up to the ceremony date.
How will I be informed of COVID restrictions at the time?
Should the current restrictions on public gatherings change, we will inform you of how these changes will affect your graduation ceremony by email.
Will my fellow classmates be attending the same graduation as me?
Our intention is to be as flexible as possible to allow all graduating students to attend a ceremony in a location that suits them. Why not get together with your classmates and arrange to attend the same event!
