Congrats Summer and Fall 2023 Graduates

Are you ready to celebrate all of your achievements? TCC is excited to see you through this final step, congratulate all your hard work, and help you walk across the stage for your diploma.


The Tallahassee Community College Summer and Fall 2023 Commencement ceremony will be held on Friday, December 8, 2023, at 6 p.m. at the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center.


You may invite as many family and friends as you would like. Tickets are not required. The Civic Center charges $10 per vehicle to park. The Civic Center has a clear bag policy, meaning no purses or tote bags unless they are clear. Airhorns or cowbells are not allowed.


Graduates must purchase a cap and gown at the TCC Bookstore and wear it to the commencement ceremony. Graduates should dress in light clothes that will be comfortable under their gowns. This is a formal ceremony, so no tennis shoes or flip-flops. A tie is optional. If you decorate your mortarboard, please use good taste and discretion.
