The Graduation Statement is an official document provided to graduates by awarding institution in addition to their award certificate. It contains information about the course, the award, the institution and the Australian Higher Education system. The Graduation Statement also includes a section on special achievements of the graduate, which include official scholarships and prizes. This provides other institutions and potential employers with a broader understanding of the achievements of the graduate.

Curtin introduced the Graduation Statement for students who were conferred after 1 November 2010. Graduates who completed their studies prior to 1 November 2010 will not be eligible to receive a Graduation Statement. The design of the Curtin Graduation Statement is based on nationally agreed specifications approved by the Department of Education and Training.

Curtin University does not currently provide a GPA to its students or graduates. A GPA will not appear on the Graduation Statement. The Course Weighted Average, as currently displayed on the Academic Transcript, will be displayed on the Graduation Statement.

Eligible graduates will receive their Graduation Statement with their complementary Academic Transcript.

A Graduation Statement and an Academic Transcript

The Graduation Statement contains additional details about the nature of the award and also shows any approved special achievements that may have been awarded, such as approved scholarships.

Curtin University does not use or calculate a Grade Point Average. However under the Curtin University Grading system, a CWA of 0.00 is the minimum, a CWA of 50.00 is the mid-point and a CWA of 100.00 is the maximum, and this scale may be used to calculate an equivalent GPA/CGPA.

A CGPA will not appear on the Graduation Statement. The Course Weighted Average (CWA), as currently displayed on the Academic Transcript, will be displayed on the Graduation Statement.
If you wish to convert your grades to CGPA, you can apply it from Miri Students Services Centre with a FEE. For enquiries, please email Student Services Office.
