Participation in the Graduation Ceremony 2019


We kindly invite all RWTH Aachen graduates from the summer semester of 2017 and the winter semester of 2017/18 to the 2019 Graduation Celebration on September 14, 2019.


Participation Requirements

The requirements for participation are as follows:

  • Bachelor’s, Master’s, Diplom, State Examination and Magister students:
    The date of your degree certificate must fall between April 1, 2018 and March 31, 2019.
  • Doctoral candidates:
    For doctoral candidates, completion of the doctoral degree is decisive for participation in the graduation ceremony. Eligible to participate are doctoral candidates who receive their doctorate certificate in the period between April 1, 2018, and March 31, 2019.
  • Bachelor’s Graduates Enrolled in a Master’s Program
    Also eligible to participate are Bachelor’s graduates who complete their degree in April 2019 (and thus after the end of the winter semester of 2018/19; see date of degree certificate) and who retroactively enroll in a Master’s program at RWTH for the summer semester of 2019.
  • Model degree program Medicine and Dentistry:
    For these courses of study, special regulations apply, as degree completion typically takes place very early in the semester. Thus, graduates in Medicine and Dentistry from the 2018/19 winter semester and the 2019 summer semester are eligible to apply.

The registration progress for the 2019 Graduation Celebration takes place in two steps:

  1. Waiting list
    The pre-registration period has ended on May 31, 2019. Those who missed the pre-registration period but completed their studies in Summer Semester 2018 or Winter Semester 2018/19, including the exceptions listed above, have until July 31, 2019, to join the waiting list. Individuals eligible to participate can acquire tickets at a later time. You will be sent an email with the necessary information in August.
    Follow this link to the Waiting list.

  2. Ticket Sale
    All pre-registered graduates and doctoral graduates who have officially completed their degrees in the relevant period of time will be informed via email by mid July 2019 about how to actually acquire tickets for the event. Graduates can purchase tickets for themselves and up to three guests.
    If you preregistered for the 2020 Graduation Celebration, we ask for your patience. If your email address changes, please update it in the registration portal.
