Grad Walk Questions

You can attend either or both. Just provide your preference to the Graduation Team at graduation@seminolestate.edu

Recent graduation celebrations were outdoor, drive-through ceremonies where families remained in their vehicles during their graduate's stage entrance. Now with Grad Walk, families will walk alongside together indoors.

No. Grad Walk will not be recorded or broadcast on the web.

If you require assistance accessing the stage, need a sign language interpreter or require other accommodations, please indicate so when you RSVP for graduation. A member of the graduation team will contact you about your specific accommodation. If a member of your party requires assistance, the graduation venues for Grad Walk and commencement are ADA-compliant and event staff will be available to assist.
