EFSC Fall Graduation Set for Dec. 15

November 29, 2022 - Eastern Florida State College will hold graduation ceremonies for Fall Commencement on Dec. 15, marking the achievements of students earning their diplomas this term.

More than 1,700 students are eligible to receive their diplomas with two ceremonies at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the King Center for the Performing Arts on the Melbourne Campus.

Graduates can each have four guests seated inside the King Center, with digital reserved seat tickets, obtained in advance, required.

Both ceremonies will be televised live on WEFS-TV and streamed on the college’s @easternflorida YouTube channel with a link also posted on the college website. Graduates, family and friends should share photos to social media using #EFSCGrad.

Here are details about the ceremony reservation and ticketing process.
 
Eligible graduates who RSVPd to take part in commencement by Nov. 8 can reserve their ceremony time and guest tickets until Dec. 8 using the King Center's online ticketing system and the unique, password-protected access they received via email from the EFSC Registrar's Office on Nov. 28.
 
The free tickets will automatically be attached to the order when the student chooses either the 11 a.m. or 2 p.m. ceremony, with the capacity at each commencement limited on a first-come, first-served basis.
 
Once reserved, tickets will be delivered electronically via an email from the King Center, with guest tickets provided as a group of four assigned seats.
 
Pre-registered graduates will not need tickets to attend their ceremony, they only need to reserve the ceremony time through their custom link in the email. Tickets are for their guests only.
 
The Registrar's Office will also email pre-ceremony check-in details along with how to access regalia students may have earned such as Honors graduate and Veteran's cords.
 
Because of ticketing requirements, walk-up requests on Dec.15 to participate in commencement cannot be accommodated. Guests of all ages will not be allowed in the King Center without a ticket and must sit in the seat location listed on the ticket.

The King Center has an updated bag policy and no large bags are allowed in the venue. Any bag or container not meeting the approved options will have to be returned to the vehicle. Approved bag options are as follows:

  • A non-clear wristlet/wallet/clutch 4.5”x8.5”x2” or smaller
  • Clear bag up to 12”x6”x12”
  • Clear one gallon plastic resealable storage bag

Caps and gowns are required for the services and are available at the Eastern Florida Bookstores.

Graduates will have a professional photo taken while they are on stage by GradImages and the company will contact students directly after commencement with details on available photos and how to purchase them.
