Congratulations on nearing the completion of your degree. Once you graduate, you will join an elite group of New College alumni.

Sunset reception will be on Thursday, May 16th at Robertson Park and all Faculty, Staff, and students will be invited to share with you and your family your accomplishments.

Commencement is planned for the beautiful Bayfront Lawn of Historic Ringling Mansion | College Hall on Friday, May 17th.  Rehearsal will be in the morning and the ceremony will begin at 7 pm.  (Rain date will be Saturday,  May 18th at 10 am).  The ceremony will be live-streamed for anyone who is not able to be in person at the ceremony on our New College of Florida YouTube channel.

The ceremony will be a ticketed (free) event.  You will be able to pick up the tickets and  (at no cost) caps and gowns soon (caps and gowns are encouraged, but not required).  Details will be shared on pick-up later this month.   (There is no limit to tickets, but if you expect to need more than 12, please email [email protected].)

Following the ceremony there will be a reception on the Cook Hall lawn for everyone to celebrate with you.

We are conscientious of accessibility needs for the event and will have golf cart transportation from several parking lot locations, as well as a ramp to the platform along with interpreters for the ceremony.

Hopefully, this is helpful information to you, but as always, if you have any additional questions or need any clarification, please feel free to email: [email protected].

The ceremony will be live-streamed for those unable to attend in person   The link will be posted closer to commencement.
