Information for Debtors

If you are in debt to the University then you will not be eligible to attend your graduation ceremony. The University reserves the right not to allow you to attend your graduation ceremony and it is also University policy to withhold degree certificates until the debt is settled in full.

If you are unsure whether you owe any money to the University, you should go to the Finance Office with your University student card to check your account for outstanding debt and check with the library that you do not owe any library fees. 

Data Protection 1998

The Data Protection Act 1998 means that we are only able to discuss personal and individual student related matters with the student. Graduation Office staff are not at liberty to divulge information or take instruction from a third party, even if that third party is a family member.

As a graduating student, even if you will not be attending a graduation ceremony, your name and course details will be published in the graduation programme which will be handed out at the ceremony.

Your name will also be included in a special edition of the local newspaper. However, there is an option for your name and course details to be omitted from the newspaper when you register for your graduation ceremony via MAP. 

Please note your degree classification will not be published. It will simply be your name listed underneath your programme title.

Aston University graduation ceremonies are considered to be public events. There may be a university photographer present and by attending you give us permission to use any general crowd photos you appear in on our website or for marketing purposes.
