Graduation Fees & Supplies

Question 1:  Graduation Fee

$20 per Intent to Graduate Application. A separate form must be submitted for each degree.

Question 2:  Late Fee

A $20 late fee is assessed for each application submitted after the published deadline of the term in which you apply to graduate. For graduation deadlines, refer to the graduation homepage or the academic calendar.

Question 3:  Caps, Gowns & Announcements

Graduates are required to wear an Eastern Florida State College blue or green cap & gown, which includes a commemorative blue & green EFSC tassel. EFSC's four campus bookstores are your source to purchase your cap & gown and tassel. Robes are green for graduates receiving a bachelor's degree and blue for all others. You can view the Commencement Ceremony Information PDF for details on preparing for the ceremony and the logistics on graduation day.

The bookstore offers online ordering for all graduation supplies, and if the order includes only the gown, cap and tassel, it can be shipped free to the Campus Bookstore if it is ordered by that term's deadline. If an online order includes other items, such as announcements, rings or diploma frames, it must be shipped to a home address and there is a shipping fee.

Order Spring 2020 Commencement caps and gowns online by March 20, 2020 to ensure free delivery to a Campus Bookstore. Once the deadline for online ordering passes, you can purchase your regalia by visiting a campus bookstore right up until the commencement ceremony each term.

To purchase as part of the bulk order at your campus bookstore, you can also stop in the store. Your supplies can then be picked up once they arrive. Click for Bookstore locations on each campus.

Question 4:  Duplicate/Replacement Diploma

You may submit the form in person to any campus admissions office, by fax to the Office of the Registrar, or by mail. Allow 6 -8 business weeks for delivery upon submission of the form.

To request a duplicate or replacement diploma:

In Person: Submit the completed form with payment to any campus cashier office

Replacement diplomas for degrees originally conferred before the name change from BCC to EFSC include the statement: “Degree granted by Brevard Community College. This institution officially became Eastern Florida State College on July 1, 2013.”

All duplicate and replacement diplomas will be stamped: “Issued as Duplicate of Original Diploma.”

Question 5:  Re-Application Fee

Students who do not complete all graduation requirements in the term during which they initially applied must submit a new Intent to Graduate application and pay the $20 processing fee in the term that the requirements are completed. Applications must be submitted by the published deadline date.
