GULF COAST state college 2019 Graduation
Gulf Coast State Colleges normally holds one commencement ceremony in May of each year. This year we will be doing things a little differently due to Hurricane Michael and holding TWO CEREMONIES. We encourage students from all semesters to participate. When you submit your graduation application, you must indicate if you wish to participate in the commencement ceremony. If you are a summer graduate and you wish to participate in the spring ceremony, you must apply for summer graduation by the spring application deadline date. See graduation deadlines.
Your participation in the commencement ceremony does not guarantee your graduation certification. You do not officially graduate until the Registrar's office certifies graduation. You will receive an email from Enrollment Services informing you of the date that your diploma will be available for pick up. Diplomas that are not picked up by the deadline date will be mailed. If you receive a deficiency letter and do not complete your deficiency by the published date, you will be required to re-apply for graduation at a later term.
BOTH CEREMONIES WILL BE LOCATED AT:
EDGEWATER BEACH CONFERENCE CENTER
520 Richard Jackson Blvd.
Panama City Beach, FL 32407
FRIDAY; MAY 3, 2019
Graduation Ceremony (1)
Graduates by Degree:

Graduation Ceremony (2)

If you are planning on participating in the graduation ceremony, you must select that option on your graduation application no later than the designated application deadline.
The graduation ceremony, as stated above, will take place on Friday; May 3, 2019, at the Edgewater Beach Resort Conference Center. The Edgewater Beach Resort is located at 520 Richard Jackson Blvd, Panama City Beach. Tickets WILL NOT be required due to us having two ceremonies. Please note that while tickets are not required, it is advised to still show up in a timely manner.
If you are participating in the ceremony, you will receive notifications from the Office of Student Affairs regarding information on ordering regalia and additional information specific to the ceremony after your application has been processed.
