TAFE Queensland North Graduations 

Congratulations! After all of your hard work it's almost time to graduate! 

Graduation is not automatic, so you will need to register to attend.

Graduates under the age of 18 will need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian.      


When to Apply, Eligibility and Ticketing

When to apply

You don't need to wait for your results to apply to graduate! If for any reason you aren't eligible to graduate, you will be refunded in full. To attend the 2017 ceremonies, you must apply before the closing date for the 2018 Ceremony.


If you have applied, but you are not eligible to graduate, we will advise you of this and you will receive a refund. You will need to contact your teacher if you have any queries about your eligibility. If you have not completed your qualification in time to graduate, your application will be withdrawn and you will need to apply to graduate at the next ceremony.

When you purchase your tickets, if you are participating in the ceremony (want to wear a gown and walk across stage to receive a certificate) you must register as a graduate.  If you register as a guest, you will not be participating in the ceremony.


Please visit our Eventbrite site (link located above) to purchase your tickets to the event.  When you purchase the tickets, you are also applying to graduate.  Eventbrite will email you a PDF of your ticket that you and your guests must bring to the event.

A limited number of tickets are available, so please apply early to ensure you and your guests are able to attend.


Please wear neat, casual clothing and sensible shoes. 

Caps and Gowns

All students are required to wear a cap and gown if they are participating in the graduation ceremonies.  On your Eventbrite application to graduate, please specify your gown size.

On the day of the event, you will pick up your gown an hour before the ceremony. Gowns must be returned after the ceremony or you will be charged.

You will be allowed to keep the tassel off your cap.

Receiving your qualification

You will receive your formal qualification in the mail within 30 days of completing your course. Please ensure that your postal address in our system is current.  At the graduation ceremony, you will receive a Certificate of Achievement for photo purposes.


If you have a family emergency or extenuating circumstances and are no longer able to attend the graduation, this will be assessed on a case by case basis.  Refunds are otherwise not available. Important Notes:

  • Update your personal information on our student management system or ring 1300 656 959
  • Apply to graduate via the Eventbrite website
  • Monitor your email account and the graduation webpages for the outcome of your application and more detail about the event
  • If you do not have a debit or credit card, you must visit your nearest campus and apply/pay in person.
  • Attend the ceremony
