Nearly 1,700 students are eligible to receive their diplomas
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Two Spring Commencement ceremonies are scheduled for Thursday, May 11, a chance for Eastern Florida State College students, families, and friends to celebrate this important milestone.
Nearly 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.
Graduates who RSVPd to take part in commencement before April 17 can reserve their ceremony time and guest tickets until May 1 using the King Center’s online ticketing system and the unique, password-protected access they received via email from the EFSC Registrar’s Office.
Once reserved, tickets will be delivered electronically via an email from the King Center the day before Commencement. Guests of all ages will not be allowed in without a ticket and must sit in the assigned seat.
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 May 11 to participate in commencement cannot be accommodated.
Under the King Center’s bag policy no large bags are allowed in the venue and any bag or container not meeting these approved options will have to be returned to the vehicle:
■ A non-clear wristlet/wallet/clutch 4.5”x8.5”x2” or smaller
■ Clear bags 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 EFSC Campus Bookstores.
The EFSC Foundation will be selling flowers, t-shirts, and other graduation-related mementos outside the King Center, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting EFSC student scholarships.
Graduates will have a professional photo taken while they are on stage by GradImages and the company will contact students directly after commencement with photo details and how to purchase them.
