  Commencement Update

We have new information regarding our Spring 2021 Commencement! The ceremony will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 2, at Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland.

Each graduate will receive four guest tickets that will be grouped together. The tickets will be assigned seating and distributed randomly to each graduate by the Registrar’s Office. The date and time to pick up the tickets is yet to be determined and will be communicated soon. We are also glad to inform you that the ceremony will be recorded and available to view online just a few days after the event.

Any student or guest needing to request ADA accommodations such as hearing impaired, mobility access, or any other needs should make a request promptly to ada@floridapoly.edu.

Every person attending commencement is expected to accept personal responsibility for their actions by following all current CDC recommendations and University policies and procedures. Guidance from the U.S Center for Disease Control (CDC) continues to emphasize that everyone must follow all steps to protect themselves and others from COVID-19 at all times. This includes proper use of face masks, social distancing, and personal hygiene. It is important to note that CDC guidance is based on what is currently known about COVID-19 and its variants.
