You must submit an application in order to graduate. Even if you do not wish to attend a graduation ceremony in person, you must still apply to have your qualification awarded in absentia.

When you become eligible to apply to graduate, an email inviting you to submit an application will be sent to your student email address during the week prior to applications opening. While we endeavour to contact everyone who is eligible, it is vital that you monitor the Opening and Closing Dates for Applications section of the website.

Applications are made online via the Your graduation application link in your eVision student portal.  You will only be able to see the link and apply when applications for your intended ceremony are open. If applications have opened and you are unable to see the graduation application link in eVision, please contact graduation@otago.ac.nz immediately, before the closing date.

To apply:

  1. Log in to eVision
  2. Click on My Graduation, then See more.
  3. Under the Apply to Graduate heading, click Your graduation application.
  4. Answer all the questions.
  5. Submit your application.

After submitting your application, a confirmation email will be sent to your nominated email address. If you have not received this by the end of the following business day contact graduation@otago.ac.nz immediately.

Once your application has been successfully submitted, you will also be able to view a summary of your graduation details within your eVision student portal.

If you have chosen to graduate in person, further information can be found in your Graduation Ceremony Guide. This is made available online approximately six weeks prior to the ceremony. You will be sent an email advising you when this information is available.
