Applying for Graduation

  1. Set up an advising appointment in order to finalize your degree plan and begin the signature process. Any changes after the plan is finalized must be approved by the advisor, otherwise graduation requirements may not be met.
  2. Apply for graduation with the TWU registrar. Deadlines to apply and instructions are available on the registrar's graduation page.
  3. Participate in the mandatory exit exam process. Those students who have applied for graduation will be contacted three to four weeks prior to the end of the semester with the dates of the assessments and the instructions for access.

All three tasks must be completed in order to graduate. If you elect to roll your graduation over to a later semester, contact the advising office and the TWU registrar as soon as possible in order to correct your records.
