THESIS TITLE:

Please submit RESEARCH STUDY/THESIS TITLE page to Registry as soon as
it is finalized, preferably not later than 31 July 2002 (Wednesday).
The Registry will check the details based on each student’s record. The
finalized title page can be collected at the counter of the Registry the
following day after submission.

ACADEMIC QUALIFICATIONS:
Candidates for graduation will not be certified for graduation at the
meeting of the Council of Faculty Examiners on 13 August 2002 unless
the original and required number of copies of the final corrected version
of their research reports, thesis or dissertation are available for examination
in their academic unit office prior to the meeting of the Council of Faculty
Examiners.

GRADUAND’S NAMES:
To ensure that names are spelt correctly and arranged in the appropriate
sequence, students who expect to graduate on 16 August 2002 are requested
to check their names on the list of graduands at the Registry Office from
1 – 12 July 2002. After mid-day of 12 July 2002, we will not
change any name on the degree certificates.

GRADUATION REHEARSAL:
The rehearsal will be at 10.00 am. and 13.30 pm. on Thursday, 15 August
2002 in the AIT Conference Center Auditorium. All graduating students
must attend both the morning and afternoon rehearsals. No excuse will be
accepted for not attending the rehearsals (e.g. family members to pick-up
at the airport, job interview, special appointment, etc.). Thus, please
ensure that you are available on the rehearsal day. Otherwise, you will
not be allowed to attend the graduation.
All graduating students are
reminded to complete the Graduation Attendance Form and return it to the
Registry not later than 5 August 2002 (Monday).

DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING CLEARANCE FORMS:
Students must clear with the Schools, Centers, Departments and the Registry
not later than 7 August 2002. You will not be allowed to graduate
if you still have unpaid fees, including Student Union fees.

TRANSCRIPTS AND DEGREE CERTIFICATES:
To save both graduand’s and Registry time, order transcripts and attested
copies of the degree certificates in a single request. Please submit requests
on or before 5 August 2002 at the latest. Please note that, for future
requests, TRANSCRIPTS WILL NOT BE MAILED WITHOUT ADVANCE PAYMENT; A CHEQUE
MADE PAYABLE TO THE ASIAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY MUST BE SENT AT
THE TIME OF REQUEST.
The processing fee is US$2.00 per copy, the postage
fee is US$13.00 for Asian countries, US$18.00 for European, American, Australian
or African countries.

GRADUATION PHOTOGRAPHS: Students should complete the request form
and pay B 150.00 to the Cashier to meet the cost of graduation photographs
(one academic unit group photograph and one individual photograph, size
5’x7′, and the negative of the individual photograph). These can be claimed
on 20-30 August 2002.

For other sizes (enlarged), please indicate clearly in the request form
available at the Registry Office.

GOWNS AND HOODS:
Students must pay B 250.00 rent for the graduation gown and hood. Give to
the Registry staff concerned the receipt and your student ID card when you
