Graduations

Confirmation: completion of qualification

When will I receive confirmation that I have completed my qualification?

After examination results are released, a final-year student's record is audited by the Directorate: Student Admissions and Registrations to verify the completion of qualification prior to the qualification status being changed from "Final year" to "Completed" by the Division: Graduations. The audit will be finalised as soon as possible after the examination results have been released.

Please note the following:

  • The Division: Graduations will only notify you about the completion of your qualification once the audit has been finalised by the Directorate: Student Admissions and Registrations.
  • You will receive an e-mail and SMS informing you that you have completed your qualification. An Advance Statement of Results - which will also confirm the completion of your qualification - will be sent to you via your myLife e-mail account.
  • You will not receive any notification about the completion of a qualification if you have a pending disciplinary hearing, or owe any outstanding fees or library material.
