After Commencement


Hometown News


After Commencement, use this page to locate and print a news release announcing your student's graduation or selection to the Dean's or TCU Scholar's List. (This information will be available on or around June 30, 2016.)


Enter the student's last name in the search field, then click "search." Click on your student's name when it appears on the screen to access a PDF-format news release, which can be printed from your computer. Graduating students who also qualified for Dean's or TCU Scholar's List will appear twice; be certain to print both news releases for your scrapbook or files.
Feel free to use the space at the bottom of the news release to add other information about your student, including other academic honors received, grandparents' names, high school attended, college organizations and extracurricular activities, etc. We encourage parents to submit these news releases to your local newspaper, which may choose to print the information.


If there is a mistake in your student's news release, please contact Holly Ellman at to update the information and have a corrected release posted to this site or sent to you.
