Preparing to Graduate


If all goes as planned, it won't be long until you're ready to graduate. 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 ceremonies each year, at the end of the fall and spring terms. Summer graduates are invited to walk in the fall ceremony.

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.

Congratulations To Our Fall 2015 Candidates!
