Invitation to graduate


Once your eligibility has been confirmed, you'll receive an email that contains your invitation to graduate. You should receive this about five weeks before the ceremony. Your invitation will be sent to your USC student email account. If you believe you are eligible to graduate and have not received your invitation, please contact Student Central.

When you RSVP to your invitation you'll be asked to confirm that you have read and agreed to the terms and conditions.

RSVP using the link from your invitation email.

Tickets are not required for you or your guests but you will need to register the number of guests attending for seating and catering purposes. Typically each graduating student will bring up to four guests and children are welcome. The ceremony lasts about one and half hours and is followed by official photographs and a standing reception.

If you or your guests require assistance at the ceremony, please contact Student Wellbeing

Graduation fee

You'll be asked to pay your graduation fee when you submit your RSVP. This fee is $99 and includes the hire of academic dress (your robe and trencher). There are no additional fees for your guests.
