Commencement Ticket Process Frequently Asked Questions

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

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 King Center 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 two 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.

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 by the published deadline date. For the Fall 2021 commencement ceremonies, candidates who RSVPd by the published deadline will receive two (2) 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 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? 

There is no reserved seating. Seating for all graduation ceremonies is on a first-come, first-served basis for those with tickets. Guests with tickets will be seated beginning one hour before the ceremony. Commencement day includes two ceremonies. Ceremonies begin promptly at noon and 3 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?

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 two (2) 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? 

Yes. You can participate in the commencement ceremony if you applied for graduation or did not indicate “yes” to attending the ceremony after the published deadline. You must email graduation@easternflorida.edu with your intent to participate in the ceremony.

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.
