CIT Graduation Celebration

When you complete your qualification, you will be issued a *CIT Testamur (for you to frame and hang on the wall) and your Record of Results (listing the subjects you studied and your results) within 30 days of your teacher entering the final pass result for your last subject.

If you do not receive your CIT Testamur and/or Record of Results within 30 days of completion, please contact your CIT teacher, or email with your name, your CIT ID number and the name and course code of the course in which you were enrolled. Some of the possible reasons for the delay are listed below and you can check these by logging on to CIT Self Service.

Check that your address is correct; if your address is not correct update it immediately via CIT Self Service. If your qualification has already been posted there will be a charge to have it reissued.##

Check your unofficial transcript via CIT Self Service to see if all your results have been entered. If your transcript shows that you have been unsuccessful in a subject/s and you don't think that the result is correct or there are results missing contact your teacher directly or email so that this issue can be resolved.

Check whether you have a hold on your record (a hold on your record will prevent any academic paperwork from being released). If you do have a hold on your record call CIT Student Services on (02) 6207 3188 to resolve this issue. Don't forget to email after your hold has been lifted so that your qualification can be issued.

* Certificate I - IV, Diploma, Advanced Diploma, Degree, Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma qualifications - students graduating from these qualifications will be eligible for both a CIT Testamur and a Record of Results.

** For short courses or partial completion of one of the qualifications listed above - students will be issued with a Transcript only (no CIT Testamur).

CIT Graduation Celebration Events

Each year students of the Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) who have successfully completed their studies may attend a CIT Graduation Celebration Event and receive formal recognition of their success at the Institute. Invitations to these events are sent to your email address approximately six weeks prior to the event. Make sure you keep your contact details up to date to ensure you receive your invitation.

CIT Graduation Celebration events are important for students and CIT. These events provide a public occasion to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of our graduates and the expertise and dedication of their teachers. On this occasion we also acknowledge the support of family, partners and friends. CIT teaching areas may also nominate students for Prizes and Medals to be presented at the events.

These Events are a prestigious robed event and students who choose to attend are required to wear academic dress. Academic dress consists of a black gown with long sleeves, a hood or stole in a discipline colour that represents the program you have completed and a black mortarboard (cap) depending on the qualification. CIT will arrange the hire of academic dress. The academic dress hire fee is $65 (fees subject to change).
