How to Apply for Graduation

  • Check your record to ensure you are in the correct major and catalog year. Unless you have initiated a catalog change, your catalog year is the one that was in effect during your first term of enrollment at TWU.
  • If you need to change your major, minor or catalog year prior to graduation, please submit the necessary Change of Major or Catalog Waiver to the Office of Student Records.
  • Submit a graduation application online by the deadline (stated above and in the University Catalog). Graduation applications submitted after the deadline will not be accepted if submitted one month or less prior to the graduation date.
