We are delighted that this year's finalists will be able to enjoy an in-person graduation ceremony in the Sheldonian. Finalists have recently been contacted directly by the central University with details of ceremonies appropriate for them to book (the ceremony/ceremonies offered are dependant on when your results become final). Booking opened on the 6 July. If you have been unable to secure a place, all finalists can submit this short form to indicate their preference in terms of the options now available to them, which are listed below:
- Join the waiting list to attend a graduation ceremony on one of the following dates:
- 25 September
- 29 October
- 12 November
- 13 November
Waiting lists are now in operation. You will hear in due course whether you have secured a place at your requested waiting list ceremony.
- Graduate in absentia
- Join the list to be invited to a 2022 ceremony
We are aware that due to high demand, some ceremonies have booked up quickly; St Cross were allocated a maximum of 40 spaces at each of four ceremonies in 2021, three of these were for finalists and one for students who received leave to supplicate in 2019-20 when no ceremonies were held. We would like to emphasise that there will be further opportunities to book a graduation ceremony at a later date. We look forward to being able to celebrate your remarkable achievements with you after such a difficult year. If you have any questions please complete the 'queries' section of the enquiry form and we will respond as soon as possible.
Student Status & Preparing to Leave the University
All Junior Members are automatically members of Common Room with College student status while they retain student status in the University. This ceases on publication of your examination results, or on being granted Leave to Supplicate for a research degree.
To help prepare you for leaving the University, and to answer your questions about computer and IT access, degree certificates, library access and more, please visit the University pages. Important information about IT access and when this will expire is available here. If you are a PGT student who has been granted an extension for submission of a dissertation, and your deadline now occurs after the original expiry date of your University card, your card will be extended to 30 September 2021 and you will receive an email to confirm this. If you have questions about the expiry date of your University card, and believe it will need extending to support you whilst you complete your studies, please contact email@example.com
We cannot extend access to your Oxford email address beyond your University card expiry date and the University currently does not offer an Email for Life. More details about email addresses for alumni can be found on the University Alumni website.
All alumni can request a My Oxford Card which gives you access to various benefits and offers. To request a card please use the My Oxford Card platform. From your account at My Oxford Online, you can get also exclusive content from the University, update your contact details, and manage your communication preferences.
Please make arrangements to return any library books you have borrowed from the College Library. You can either leave your books in the returns cupboard in the College foyer or at the Porters’ Lodge marked for the attention of our Librarian, Philippa Taney.
If you are not in Oxford, you can post your books back to College, for the attention of Philippa.
If you are having difficulties getting your books back to us, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
