The College of Fine Arts celebrates commencement unlike any other college at the University of Florida. Our ceremony is truly a celebration, infused with the sights, sounds and creativity of our college. Honored guests motivate attendees with their wisdom and students and faculty uplift us all with performances, visions and traditions.

Each student who has submitted an RSVP will be allowed 4 tickets for guests for this event.
Arrival and Seating
Tickets are General Admission. There is no reserved seating. The doors to the Auditorium open at 9:00 am. Please wait until this time to arrive. The ceremony will involve an academic procession of students and faculty into the University Auditorium, beginning at
9:30 am. University commencement protocol does not permit seating of guests during the processional, so please arrive in plenty of time to be seated before it starts.
There is plenty of parking near the University Auditorium including a parking garage on Museum Road. View Campus Parking Maps.
If someone in your party needs disability accommodations, please email the College of Fine Arts at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 352-392-0207.
All degree candidates will be recognized individually, degrees conferred, and we will end with the University of Florida Alma Mater and a recessional of faculty and graduates. We ask that all guests remain in their seats until the recessional is complete.
We have arranged for a professional photographer to take pictures of each graduate as he/she walks across the stage. We cannot permit other family photographs during the ceremony, but there will be plenty of time and many photo-perfect locations outside the building immediately after the ceremony.
