If you attend your graduation ceremony in person and providing you have no outstanding debt to the university you will receive your certificate. If you do not attend, your certificate will be posted out to you the week after the ceremony, provided you have registered through MAP stating that you will not be attending and confirmed your address. Otherwise, your certificate will remain in the Registry Office until claimed.
Collection of Certificate
Alternatively, you may arrange to collect your certificate from The Hub in the main building. The date certificates can be collected is 1st of the month following the ceremonies. If you elect another person to collect the certificate for you, they must have signed authorisation from you and show their identification when they collect the certificate on your behalf.
Graduates (who do not wish to attend their ceremony) request that their certificate be given to them before the ceremonies have taken place. This is not possible. The graduation ceremonies are 'awarding ceremonies' - this means that the university validates the certificate at the ceremony and will not be given out until this has been done.
There will be facilities to buy certificate frames on your ceremony day in the main building of Aston University.
