EFSC Readies for Spring Commencement Ceremonies

April 25, 2018 - Eastern Florida State College students will start new journeys in life May 10 when they celebrate graduation at Spring Commencement.

More than 2,100 students are eligible to graduate at two ceremonies at the King Center for the Performing Arts on the Melbourne campus.

The ceremonies start at noon and 3 p.m., with ceremony time assignments based on where a student lives or their program.

Each graduate who RSVP’d to attend a commencement ceremony by the March 8 ticket reservation deadline will have received three tickets for family and friends.

There is no reserved seating inside the King Center, where doors will open one hour before each ceremony. Large screen TV’s will also be available for viewing in King Center overflow rooms.

Both ceremonies will be televised live on WEFS-TV and streamed live on the college’s @easternflorida YouTube channel with a link also available at the college website.

Ceremony attendees are encouraged to share photos via social media using the hashtag #efscgrad. Special commencement Snapchat geofilters will also be available inside and adjacent to the King Center.

Check-in for student graduates takes place at the Melbourne Gymnasium, Building 6 and begins one hour and 15 minutes before each ceremony. The EFSC Foundation will host a table at check-in to connect new graduates with the College's Alumni Association.

The fall term graduates will join more than 100,000 others who have graduated from the college since it began in 1960.

Eastern Florida offers more than 100 degrees and programs including Bachelor and Associate Degrees, plus Certificate Programs in some of today’s fastest growing career fields.

Classes are available on all four campuses and online. For more information, visit
