Important Graduation Reminder


 All communication regarding graduation ceremonies and guest tickets will be sent to your student email only - be sure to check it on a regular basis for updates.

Preparing to Graduate

Degrees are not conferred until the end of the term and upon verification that all requirements have been met. Students are responsible for determining that they've met all graduation requirements and have no outstanding financial obligations to the College.

Students who meet all graduation requirements for any degree or certificate program must apply to graduate to receive their Eastern Florida State College degree, whether or not they plan to attend the commencement exercises.

EFSC holds two commencement ceremonies each year at the Melbourne Campus King Center, at the end of the fall and spring terms. Summer graduates are invited to walk in the fall ceremony. Be sure to review ceremony information, including information about EFSC's guest ticket process.

Congratulations To Our Summer Candidates!
