Preparing to Graduate

Degrees are not conferred until the end of the term and upon verification that all requirements have been met. Students are responsible for determining that they've met all graduation requirements and have no outstanding financial obligations to the College.

Students who meet all graduation requirements for any degree or certificate program must apply to graduate to receive their Eastern Florida State College degree, whether or not they plan to attend the commencement exercises.

EFSC traditionally holds two commencement ceremonies each year at the Melbourne Campus King Center, at the end of the fall and spring terms. Summer graduates are invited to walk in the fall ceremony.

Congratulations To Our Spring 2021 Candidates!
