POLICY FOR REQUIRED ATTENDANCE AT GRADUATION
Part of the privilege of attending a small university is participating in a graduation ceremony at which your professors, TU administrators and staff, family members, and classmates celebrate your academic accomplishment. Because your attendance at the Thomas University commencement is essential, we consider it a requirement. If you are not able to attend the graduation ceremony for extenuating circumstances, you must submit a request to be excused in writing to Dr. Ann Landis, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, by April 1 at email@example.com. In your e-mail, please include your name, reason for needing to be excused, and e-mail address at which you would receive a reply.
