Graduation Announcements



    St. Petersburg College’s Spring and Summer 2020 graduates will have the opportunity to commemorate their success with family and friends when the college hosts a celebration at two of its campuses on Oct. 10.

    Celebration times and locations:

    Students who earned a degree during these two terms can don their regalia, hear their name called and walk across a stage decorated for graduation. Graduates can invite up to four guests to celebrate with them and take photos. GradImages, the official photographer of SPC’s graduation ceremonies, also will be at the event to photograph students holding their diploma cover. These photos can be viewed and downloaded at

    The college will contact eligible graduates about taking part in this event via their personal/home email address. Those interested in participating must register through the emailed link and select one of the event locations. SPC’s COVID-19 safety protocols, which include wearing face coverings in all college buildings, must be observed by those taking part in the celebration. Also, please note, seating will not be available at the event.

    While SPC is excited to host this celebration, we had hoped a full commencement ceremony would have been possible. But the safety of our graduates, their guests and SPC’s employees must take precedence. Due to the current situation involving COVID-19, the college is offering this chance for a socially distant, safe opportunity to recognize the tremendous accomplishments of our graduates and celebrate with them.

    Please contact SPC’s Accessibility Services at 727-341-4510 at least one week prior to the event to request disability accommodations. In all situations, a good faith effort (up until the time of the event) will be made to provide accommodations.
