Applying for Graduation
To apply for graduation, students should fill out an Intent to Graduate form, which can be obtained at the Registrar's Office. This form should be completed at least two semesters before the anticipated graduation date to allow time for all remaining courses listed on the Intent to be completed. This form is the only way for the Registrar's Office to know when students are nearing graduation and, as a result, when to send out graduation information (for Grad Finale), order caps and gowns, order diplomas, and make other preparations to include students in the May and December Commencement Ceremony.
Once an Intent to Graduate has been filed, students must be sure to report any change of name, address, major, or intended graduation date to the Registrar's Office immediately.
Please remember the following requirements:
- To receive a degree at Tennessee Wesleyan University, students must have completed at least 120 semester hours of academic work, of which 30 hours must be at the 300-400 level. (Some majors require more than 120 hours. See major listings in the catalog for more details.)
- Candidates for graduation must have completed the appropriate Wesleyan Essentials and a major area of study with a minimum TWU grade point average of 2.0 or higher and a minimum career grade point average of 2.0 or higher.
