You must register on eventbrite and purchase your tickets in order to graduate.

Each graduate is allowed to purchase a maximum of 4 guest tickets.
Eligibility - If in doubt, register to graduate!
If you are currently studying a Certificate III, Certificate IV, Diploma or Advanced Diploma course and have registered, but you are not eligible to graduate we will advise you of this and you will receive a full refund. If you have not registered by close of ticket sales, you will not be able to participate in the Graduation Ceremony.
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 If you have not completed your qualification in time to graduate, your application will be withdrawn, you will be refunded in full and you will then need to apply to graduate at the next ceremony.
