Key Dates for Graduands
Graduation is a fantastic celebration of your achievements. To ensure your experience goes to plan, please ensure you return rsvps and details by the required deadlines. You should expect the following communications, please contact us if you do not receive expected information.
Why? To invite you to graduation and ensure you receive your guest tickets and required information, we will need your postal address and email address. We may also text, call or email you if we are missing information or need to advise you of a change.
This year, Application to Graduate is being managed online through the Student@Wintec portal. If you're a graduating student, you will receive an email by the end of January 2020 with instructions on what you need to do (apart from students completing summer school). If you have not received the link by early February, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. It is important to make sure Wintec has your most up-to-date contact details (these can be updated through the Student@Wintec portal at www.wintec.ac.nz/student@wintec).
Summer School: If you are attending summer school your invitation to graduate will be sent in the last week of February. You will receive instructions and key dates for returning your form with the letter, but this will need to be returned quickly.
Academic Dress Hire: Regalia is available to hire or buy from Academic Dress Hire – this needs to be ordered well in advance of your ceremony and can be ordered online. Instructions on how to order regalia are available at www.academicdresswaikato.co.nz.
Graduating in absentia: If you decide not to attend a ceremony, you will receive details on when to expect your certificate.
Guest tickets: You will be sent a link to confirm your attendance and reserve your guest tickets at the ceremony if you are graduating in person.
Make sure you have read all of the information on this website and know:
- Where and when you need to be at your ceremony
- What is expected of you at graduation
- When to collect your regalia and how to wear it
