2021 Summer Commencement

As positive cases continue to rise locally and nationally, including cases of the highly contagious Delta variant, FSU strongly recommends that graduates and their guests wear an appropriate face mask as we strive to protect each other and celebrate commencement together in the safest way possible.  The health and safety of our campus community is a top priority, and we urge everyone to take an active role helping to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. 

Florida State University will host two summer commencement ceremonies as the university confers nearly 3,000 degrees Friday, July 30, at the Donald L. Tucker Center.  

FSU President John Thrasher will preside over commencement for the final time of his presidency, and he also will deliver the commencement address to Summer 2021 graduates.
