Academic regalia

If attending your ceremony, you must wear approved Curtin academic regalia. After you have completed your graduation online registration, you can proceed to order your regalia (and electronic tickets) online.

Ordering your regalia

If you are attending a graduation ceremony in Perth, Kalgoorlie or Singapore you can hire or purchase Curtin academic regalia from our official provider GFP Graduations. Information regarding regalia hire for ceremonies at other locations will be provided by your campus.

After you have completed your registration via the graduations channel in OASIS, you will be directed to the GFP Graduations website to order your regalia.

If you are not attending your ceremony and would like to purchase or hire regalia, or for more information please contact GFP Graduations.

I have my own regalia

When you register to attend a ceremony for graduation you will be directed to order your regalia. Select ‘own’ against each regalia item you have. If the degree you have completed is a higher level or in another discipline you will need to purchase a new sash.  

Check with our regalia supplier GFP Graduations for more information or refer to the chart below to find out which colour your sash is required for your discipline.
