Whether you are supporting a friend or relative, Seminole State's commencement ceremonies offer a wonderful way to congratulate your loved ones on completing the next step in their educations. To ensure a smooth and stress-free ceremony, we ask that all guests in attendance observe the following guidelines and procedures before and during the graduation ceremony:

  • Travel to the CFE Arena at UCF may take longer than expected, so plan to arrive 90 minutes prior to the commencement ceremony. Anticipate long lines due to additional security measures. To expidite the security screening process leave purses and bags at home.
  • Tickets to the ceremony are required for all guests, including children and infants, so please ensure that each guest has a ticket. To obtain a guest ticket for graduation please request one from your graduating student.
  • Guests who arrive early will have the best choice of seating. Doors open 90 minutes prior to the ceremony's start time. Guests who plan to sit together should arrive together.
  • To maintain the dignity of this formal occasion, the following items are NOT permitted inside the CFE Arena: bottles, cans, containers, vases, alcoholic beverages, noisemakers, air horns, laser pens, silly string, confetti, banners, signs or posters.
  • Baby strollers and balloons are NOT permitted in seating areas.
  • While cameras and video recording equipment are permitted, guests are required to photograph or videotape from their seats only and must not obstruct the view of others.


Parking is free for graduates and guests attending the graduation ceremony. Please download a graduate/guest parking pass. Please download your graduate/guest parking pass here.
