Record number of degrees at Fall 2012 graduation

For the first time in its history, Seminole State will hold its Fall Commencement off-site to accommodate the College's growth. The Dec. 16 ceremony will take place at the UCF arena.

More than 3,000 bachelor’s degrees, associate degrees and program certificates  – a record number – will be  awarded this term by Seminole State College of Florida, according to the Department of Enrollment Services.

Students will cross the stage on Sunday, Dec. 16, at 2 p.m. during Seminole State's Fall 2012 Commencement in the University of Central Florida Arena. In a move driven by Seminole State’s growth, this will be the first time in 40 years that Commencement will take place off-site.

Graduates of all Seminole State programs, including 14 who earned bachelor’s degrees, will participate.

Dr. John Hitt, who recently celebrated his 20th anniversary as president of the University of Central Florida, will provide the keynote address.

Under Hitt’s leadership, UCF partnered with Seminole State to create DirectConnect to UCF, which provides guaranteed access to UCF for Seminole State students. More than 10,000 Seminole State students participated in the program. 

In another first for Seminole State, the College will introduce its ceremonial mace during the ceremony. The mace was crafted from a six-foot branch of “The Senator,” one of the world’s oldest bald cypress trees and the largest native tree in Florida.
