Florida Southern holds two graduation ceremonies each year, one in the spring and one in the fall. (Summer and fall graduates participate in the fall Commencement.) To graduate, you must complete an Application for Graduation. Applications for Graduation can be accessed directly through your portal, go to the Student tab, and Advising Info.
Commencement instructions are distributed approximately two months prior to graduation. There is a graduation fee of $60.00. This covers academic costs associated with commencement including preparation of diplomas. This fee does not cover the purchase of caps and gowns. These are purchased directly from the bookstore.
