Please note that this is NOT the site to apply to graduate from TWU. To apply to graduate, please visit the registrar's office in ADM 128, go to www.twu.edu/registrar/graduation.asp or call 940-898-3036.TWU's Office of Marketing and Communication will send one press release to newspapers in Texas and other hometowns of TWU graduates that are out of state.
The press release will list information about TWU's December 2014 commencement ceremonies and list all TWU graduates (except for those who have marked their records private through the registrar’s office) in a table format.
In addition, TWU graduates may send a personalized press release to the newspaper(s) of their choice using the TWU Fall 2014 Graduation Press Release Template for Houston (word, pdf) or Denton (word, pdf.)
Students can download the press release template from the TWU Marketing and Communication website after January 23, 2015 and insert the appropriate information they would like to send to the newspaper(s) of their choice. Then students can send the release to the newspapers themselves for possible publication.
Most newspapers have their own websites. Visit a search engine like Google or Yahoo and type in the newspaper’s information. From the newspaper’s website you can obtain the appropriate contact information. Some newspapers have online forms where you can submit the information. You also can use the phone book or information to find the newspaper’s phone number or physical address.
TWU’s Marketing and Communication department recommends that graduates send their personalized press release to their chosen newspapers by January 30, 2015 to ensure timely publication.
• DISCLAIMER: Sending a press release announcing your graduation to your local newspaper(s) does not guarantee publication.

Graduates, family and friends should monitor their local newspaper for publication of your announcement.
