Here you will find a variety of templates related to student commencement. Use the links below to jump to specific examples on this page:
The examples below provide a basic template to congratulate graduating students. You may edit, remove, or add content as desired. Replace the text in RED with your school's info. Text in [Yellow] represents personal data from your spreadsheet or list of students. 
If a student graduated with honors: Add a separate [Honors] column to your spreadsheet. Insert a placeholder for it after the word "graduated". If a student doesn't have data in that cell, Merit will skip it. 

If a student has two majors: Add a column called [Major 2] to your spreadsheet. Include the word "and" before the second major so that it fits whether a student has a second major or does not. For example, [Business] [and Marketing].
