December 2023 Commencement

The December commencement ceremony will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 15, at the Expo Hall at the Florida State Fairgrounds.

Tickets are not required for family members or guests to attend either ceremony. However, due to limited seating, it is highly recommended that family members and guests arrive early at the Florida State Fairgrounds.

Family Communication Philosophy 

While we understand family members and guests are excited to celebrate their student's achievements at commencement, we are only able to provide general information about the ceremony as opposed to student-specific information. Please visit the Student Affairs Family Communication Philosophy for more details.
