UG Congregation - What to do after the Congregation

Congregation Grounds:

University is happy to have your loved ones around to share in our joy on your graduation. However, other Congregation Ceremonies follow immediately and the Great Hall will need to be prepared for your colleagues attending the next session.

Therefore, we ask that at the end of the ceremony, you leave the vicinity of the Hall promptly to facilitate cleaning and set up of the Hall for the next ceremony. For that same reason, loitering, littering and picnicking cannot be allowed around the Great Hall.

Return of Gowns, Collection of Certificates and Souvenirs

Graduates are asked to return the rented gowns to the original collection point from Monday, 19th November to Friday, 23rd November 2018, between the hours of 9.00 a.m. and 4.30 p.m.  Failure to return gowns as required during this period will attract a weekly penalty. Late submission should be done at Room D7, Academic Affairs Directorate where the penalty will be determined. Failure to return gowns/hoods will result in graduates NOT being able to obtain transcripts, verifications or certificates.

To ensure security of certificates and return of academic gowns, graduands who sign up for Congregation should upon return of gown set, present their UG student identification card (or UG provisional ID), sign and collect certificates and souvenirs in person. Return to the designated collection point to return gowns set  and collect certificate.
