Commencement Schedule Update
Due to inclement weather forecasted for Friday morning, the College of Arts and Sciences ceremony at Texas Motor Speedway has been moved to Saturday at 2 p.m. We realize this may be inconvenient for some, but we need to ensure the safety of our graduates and our volunteers.
Texas Woman's University is holding in-person drive-thru graduation events Dec. 11-13 in recognition of all May, August and December graduates. These unique off-campus events will be livestreamed.
The Denton/Dallas ceremonies will be held at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth on Dec. 11-12. In Houston, the drive-thru ceremonies will be hosted by Heavy Construction Systems Specialists (HCSS) in Sugar Land on Dec. 13.

Commencement Message from Our Chancellor
Graduates should arrive at their ceremony location in full regalia, as there will not be a place to put on your robe at Texas Motor Speedway or HCSS.
The TWU Campus Bookstore in Denton offers robes and other commencement-related items in its on-campus inventory. Stop by to pick up what you need for this weekend's events. The Bookstore will have a small tent set-up at Texas Motor Speedway in case you forget your tassel.
Place orders now for diploma frames and the Texas Woman’s University class ring.
