Students who have registered to participate in the upcoming commencement ceremony by completing the 2021 Commencement Participation form should order their cap and gown by Friday, April 2. This will ensure that the regalia arrives before the event.

Florida Poly’s 2021 commencement will be held in person at the Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland on Sunday, May 2.

Every person attending commencement is expected to accept personal responsibility for their actions by following all current CDC recommendations and University policies and procedures. Guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) continues to emphasize that everyone must follow all steps to protect themselves and others from COVID-19 at all times. This includes proper use of face masks, social distancing, and personal hygiene. It is important to note that CDC guidance is based on what is currently known about COVID-19 and its variants.
