Commencement Ticket FAQ: Click to reveal the answer

Question 1:  Will I need a ticket to attend my graduation ceremony?

No. Candidates do not need tickets to participate in the commencement ceremony, but when notified via email, they must reserve a ceremony time using the King Center online ticketing system. Candidates must apply to graduate. Emails related to commencement are only sent to students who officially applied to graduate that term.

Question 2:  Will my guests need tickets to the graduation ceremony? 

Yes. Every guest, including infants and small children, requires a ticket to ensure compliance with safety protocols. Candidates must indicate "yes" to attending the commencement ceremony by the deadline in order to be eligible for guest tickets, with each commencement participant who meets that deadline being allotted guest tickets. Tickets will be delivered electronically and will not be replaced if lost.

Question 3:  How can I select my ceremony time and claim my guest tickets?

All candidates who submitted an Intent to Graduate application by the published deadline to indicate "Yes" for attending commencement will receive an email from the Office of the Registrar with information on selecting a ceremony time and claiming guest tickets by the date indicated in the email.

Graduation candidates who applied by that published deadline will be emailed first. After that, if there are seats available in one or both ceremonies, these seats and four guest tickets will be released to all candidates who applied after the deadline on a first-come, space-available basis. An email will be sent that includes a link to reserve a ceremony time and claim guest tickets on a space available basis.

Please continue to check your student email account for more information.

Reminder:  All seats are first-come, first served, until all seats have been reserved.

Question 4:  How many tickets will I get?

To safely accommodate you and your guests, the number of guest tickets is determined based on the number of confirmed candidates who indicated “yes” to attending the ceremony on their graduation application by the published deadline date. For the Spring 2022 commencement ceremonies, candidates who indicated "yes" to attending commencement on their graduation application by the published deadline will receive four (4) guest tickets when they choose their ceremony times via the King Center Ticketing system.

All King Center seats are general admission. The assigned ceremony time and assigned seat location will be included on the electronic tickets. Tickets are non-replaceable and do not have monetary value. The college does not support or condone the selling of guest tickets. EFSC is not responsible for lost, stolen, destroyed or deleted guest tickets.

Guests are not allowed in the King Center without a ticket. Both commencement ceremonies will also be televised live on WEFS-TV and streamed live on the college's YouTube channel.

**Eastern Florida State College reserves the right to cancel tickets for any reason.

Question 5:  Are tickets only available if I indicated "yes" to attending the commencement ceremony by the published deadline date? 

Guest tickets are initially available only to those candidates who indicated “yes” to attending the commencement ceremony on their graduation application by the published deadline and are claimed as electronic tickets while selecting a ceremony time through the King Center's online ticketing system.

After the established ticketing deadline for this initial group, unclaimed ceremony times and remaining guest tickets are made available on a first-come, first served basis while supplies last.

Please Note: Specific ticketing details are announced each term and subject to change.

Question 6:  Are my tickets for reserved seats or general admission? 

Guest tickets are assigned a seat location when the student reserves their ceremony time through the King Center's website using the access code in the email the student received. Seating is automatically assigned on a best-available location basis at the time the reservation is made in the online system.

Guests with tickets will be seated beginning one hour before the ceremony. Commencement day includes two ceremonies. Ceremonies begin promptly at 11 AM and 2 PM.

Tickets are non-replaceable and do not have monetary value. The college does not support or condone the selling of guest tickets. EFSC is not responsible for lost, stolen, destroyed or deleted guest tickets.

Question 7:  Where do I get my tickets for guests?

Virtual tickets will be distributed electronically through the King Center ticketing system prior to the commencement ceremony. Please continue to check your student email account for more information.

Reminder:  All seats and tickets are first-come, first served, until all seats have been reserved.

Question 8:  Where do I get tickets for guests who need accessible seating? 

Guests who require accessible seating should make their request to the King Center ticket office when they arrive for the event. For more information on accessibility accommodations, contact the King Center Ticket Office at 321-242-2219.

Question 9:  What happens if I lose my electronic guest tickets or guests forget them?

Please note that replacement tickets will not be issued if your allotment is lost, destroyed or deleted. EFSC is not responsible for lost, stolen, destroyed or deleted guest tickets.

Question 10:  What happens if I don’t log in and reserve my ceremony time and claim my alloted guest tickets by the established deadline? 

While seats remain available, candidates who submitted an Intent to Graduate application and said “yes” to attending the ceremony may still log into the King Center ticketing system through the custom link in the email they would have received. The link allows the candidate to select an available ceremony time and claim four (4) guest tickets, on a space-available basis.

Question 11:  If I did not submit an Intent to Graduate application or indicate “yes” to attending the commencement ceremony by the published deadline date, can I still participate in the commencement ceremony? 

On a space available basis, you may be able to participate in the commencement ceremony if you applied for graduation and did not indicate “yes” to attending the ceremony by the published deadline.

Each graduate must reserve a seat for themselves through the King Center ticketing system to attend Commencement. Graduates who did not indicate “yes” to attending the ceremony on their graduation application by the published deadline date are not eligible to reserve a seat (if available) until after the initial ceremony times are chosen. If space is available, all students who applied to graduate will receive an email with information on how to choose a ceremony time on a first-come, space-available basis.

You are not eligible for guest tickets during the initial electronic ticketing period, but may be eligible if unclaimed and remaining ceremony times and remaining guest tickets are available after that initial period, but only on a first-come, first-served basis for students who have submitted an intent to graduate form.
