Accept, defer or decline your invitation

Respond to your Invitation to Graduate on SIMO and either accept, defer or decline your attendance at the graduation ceremony (go to the main menu and select Ceremony Registration underneath Graduation).


This will confirm your attendance at the ceremony, ensuring you receive your formal academic testamur.


You can defer your attendance by up to 12 months. You’ll receive an invitation to the next round of graduation ceremonies and will need to register again via SIMO.


If you don’t wish to attend the ceremony, you still need to decline the invitation on SIMO to receive your testamur.

You won’t receive an invitation to graduate at any future ceremonies for your current award. You can choose to have your testamur posted to you, or you can collect it from Student Records.


We don’t recommend this! If you don’t accept, defer or decline your graduation invitation on SIMO, you won’t be eligible for any future graduation ceremonies for your current award, and your testamur will not be produced.

Respond via SIMO
