North Florida College holds two graduation ceremonies each year, one in May and one in December. Both graduation ceremonies are held at the Van H. Priest Auditorium on the campus of NFC.

Candidates for graduation may apply in writing. Graduation applications are available in the Graduation Office or on this webpage. If a student meets all requirements for graduation and does not apply for graduation, NFC will award the certificate or degree and notify the student. We highly recommend students meet with an academic advisor or the graduation specialist prior to applying for graduation.
