Frequently Asked Questions

Diplomas are mailed about six to eight business weeks after the semester ends.

Graduation is recorded after the semester is completed, all grades have been received, and the degree audit of each expected graduate is reviewed to confirm requirements have been satisfied. Diplomas are not distributed at commencement or any other graduation event. Participation in the commencement ceremony does not confirm graduation.

If you participate in the Commencement Ceremony, you will receive a secure link to view your photos via student FSU email within a week from Island Photography.
