In order to be eligible to graduate, you must complete all the requirements of your course, including academic and any other requirements, and have no outstanding fines, resources or accounts. While CHC will issue a general reminder about the closing date for applying to graduate in each conferral period, by posting information on the CHC website and other such means of communication, it is students’ responsibility to be aware of their progress towards completing their course requirements, their eligibility to graduate at the completion of the semester of their current enrolment and, therefore, to apply to graduate in a particular conferral period.
If you are completing your course requirements at the end of your current semester of enrolment, you must submit an Application to Graduate form by the advertised due date for the relevant conferral period (1 May for mid-year and 1 September for end-of-year). The Application to Graduate form is located on the CHC website. It is available between 1 January and 1 May for the mid-year conferral period, and from 1 June to 1 September for the end-of-year conferral period.
When you submit your application, you will receive an automated receipt email confirming the submission of your form. If you do not receive this confirmation email, please contact Student Administration.
After the closing date for each conferral period, a provisional assessment of your application will occur and you will receive an email advising you of the status of your application. You should expect to receive this email within one month of the close of applications.
A final assessment of your application will occur after the conclusion of the current semester, after which you will receive a further email regarding the outcome of your application and to confirm your eligibility to graduate.
Graduates who are granted their awards in the mid-year conferral period will have their graduation documents sent to them by registered post.
Graduates of the School of Education, Humanities and Business, the School of Social Sciences and the Millis Institute who are granted their awards in the end-of-year conferral period will have their graduation documents presented to them at the annual CHC Graduation Ceremony. Graduates who cannot attend the ceremony will have their graduation documents sent to them by registered post.
Graduates of the School Ministries who are granted their awards in the end-of-year conferral period will have their graduation documents sent to them by registered post.
If you are not currently enrolled at CHC, you can check your course progress status by contacting Student Administration
Check your personal details
The formal notification that you will receive following the final assessment of your application will include your name and the name of your award. Unless you have notified CHC of a change of name, the name on your testamur will be that which is held by CHC as supplied by you for the purpose of your enrolment. Please check these details to ensure that they are correct. If these details are not correct, you will need to submit a Change to Personal Details form, together with supporting documentation such as a marriage certificate or birth certificate, as a matter of priority.
Testamurs and Academic Transcripts
Your Testamur and a complimentary Academic Transcript will be provided with your graduation documents. These will be presented at the graduation ceremony or sent to you by registered post. Graduates of the mid-year conferral period should expect to receive their documents by mid-August, while graduates of the end-of-year conferral period who do not attend the graduation ceremony should expect to receive their documents by mid-late December. Graduates with international mailing addresses can expect to receive their documents up to 6 weeks after posting. You can order additional copies of your academic transcript online.
