Did You Know:

Graduation and commencement are two separate activities and have different requirements, processes and deadlines.

As you complete your academic journey, students apply to graduate in order to receive their degree and diploma.

Commencement is a ceremony that celebrates students' accomplishments and marks the transition of becoming part of the FGCU alumni family.

FGCU celebrates two commencement events a year – at the conclusion of the spring and fall semesters.

Students who are on track to complete their academic program during the summer term are invited to participate in either event.
