Dear Dr Surname,

The Chancellor, Mr Peter Varghese AO, and members of the Senate invite you to attend the December  2017 graduation ceremonies. As a member of academic staff, you are invited to participate in the Academic Procession, and to be seated on the stage for the ceremonies relevant to your discipline.

Please click here to review the complete December 2017 graduation ceremony schedule.

If you wish to attend any of these ceremonies, please note that it is necessary to complete the linked online registration form by no later than 5pm on Friday 1 December arranged for you. Please visit the website below to register your attendance.

Register here (please note the registration site is accessible to eligible staff only). Please login with your surname (surname) and this email address (

Academic Staff registering to participate in ceremonies are asked to note the following important change to academic dress arrangements at St Lucia. From December 2015, pre-ordered academic dress for staff members must be collected from the academic procession registration booth in the Foyer of the UQ Centre.

Having members of academic staff participating in the Academic Procession is a highlight for graduands and guests, and we hope it is an enjoyable experience for you also, as you celebrate the success of your students.

You are requested to note that, in keeping with the revised administrative processes previously conveyed by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) to Executive Deans, late registrations to attend graduation ceremonies cannot be accepted, because graduations staff will be fully deployed on other aspects of ceremony planning after Friday 1 December. If you have not registered by the deadline I regret to advise that you will not be able to participate in the Academic Procession.

Due to the limited capacity of the venues, and in order to provide maximum guest tickets to graduands, academic staff are encouraged to participate in the Academic Procession. Those wishing to invite industry partners or sponsors may apply for up to 2 VIP tickets.

If you are graduating with an award at the ceremony, you must also respond to the graduation application email sent to your student email account. This email directs you to complete your electronic conditional graduation application in mySI-net. The email sent to your student email account includes important information regarding your status as a graduating student. When you arrive on the ceremony day, please ensure you make yourself known to a Graduations staff member, so you can be briefed on the procedure for graduating from stage.

I hope that you will be able to join us in celebrating this important occasion for our graduates. Should you have any questions about the July graduations or the registration process, please do not hesitate to contact Graduations Section on telephone 3365 9194 or email


Mr Mark Erickson
Academic Registrar
