2019 End-of-year Examination Results/Graduation

End-of-year examination results

Congratulations on completing the year here at UC. Your final grades for 2019 will be available online from 7pm today, Friday, 29 November. You will be able to access these by logging into myUC and selecting the link “Internal Transcript”.

If you haven’t already done so, please check that your myUC log-in is working before 4pm today. The IT Service Desk will be available until 8pm this evening on (03) 369 2223.

This is a period of high activity for the website and you may experience slower than usual performance. If a final grade does not appear on your transcript, please contact the department concerned during their normal business hours (typically 9am-5pm). Further information about results and appeals is available on the Results and Appeals webpage.

If you are returning to study with us in 2020 and have yet to re-enrol, you can do so now via the easy online re-enrolment process. If you have any questions about how your grades affect your study plans, please speak with the appropriate College adviser.

Graduation

If you’ve been confirmed as a graduand for the December graduation ceremonies, you will receive further instructions about a week before your ceremony. We will advise you if you are not eligible to graduate. Information about the April 2020 graduation ceremonies will be available on the Graduation web page in January.

Academic Progress Reviews

At the end of each semester, the University checks the academic progress of all students and the next check-up is about to take place.

At the end of each semester, students’ academic transcripts are reviewed to make sure they are on track to succeed in their studies and meet the professional requirements for their chosen degree. If you are not heading in the right direction you may have restrictions placed on your enrolment, or be excluded from your Award/UC.

If you are not on track with your studies, you may receive an academic progress letter between 10 and 13 December. Please check your student email account regularly to ensure you receive any important information relevant to your future study at UC.

For information on who can help you with the Academic Progress process and to find resources to help you get awesome results in your studies, check out the Academic Progress website.

Applying to graduate April 2020

Students, who are eligible to graduate at the April 2020 ceremonies, are invited to apply to graduate on-line via myUC  from 1 February to 8 March 2020.  Those students who are eligible to graduate and have indicated that they will be completing their degree/diploma this year will be sent further information in early February. If you do not receive this information, please visit Graduation or contact us for guidance.

You can choose to graduate in absentia rather than in person at a ceremony. The diploma is then mailed to you. Applications to graduate in absentia should also be submitted via myUC.

If you have any enquiries about graduation, please contact graduation@canterbury.ac.nz
