TMU holds commencement exercises once a year at the end of the Spring semester. A student may participate only if
he or she has completed (or is expected to complete) all graduation requirements by the date of the commencement
exercises. Courses in progress but not completed are allowed.
A student who wishes to participate in the commencement exercises must begin the Graduation Contract (formerly
“Senior Contract”) process with the Registrar’s Office prior to the beginning of the second semester of the senior year.
This process is intended to document the student’s progress towards graduation and to facilitate TMU’s preparations
for commencement exercises and diploma production.
