Important Notes:
- Graduands are reminded to settle all outstanding library fines and loans at least two
weeks before the graduation ceremony. Failure to clear your library fines or return
outstanding items will result in a delay in the collection of your academic transcripts
and diploma certificate.

- Graduands who have registered to say that they are attending the Graduation
Ceremony will be allowed to invite up to two guests only. The number of invitation
cards issued to each graduand is controlled due to limited seating capacity in the SP
Convention Centre (SPCC).

- During the ceremony, graduands will be presented with their diplomas in alphabetical
order of name, according to their courses of study. Seat numbers will be assigned
according to the order that graduands are presented on stage, hence they must be
seated at their assigned seat.

- Guests do not have assigned seats and will be ushered to designated seating blocks
by the ushers in a separate section from graduands. Seating at the designated blocks
will be on a first-come-first-serve basis as directed by the ushers, hence guests are
encouraged to arrive early to get good seats.

- Graduands and guests who are feeling unwell are advised not to attend the Graduation
Ceremony.

- Children below 7 years old will not be allowed into the Convention Centre. They will
be ushered and seated in a near-by venue (the Auditorium).
