Registration is now open for Florida State University’s fall 2020 V-rak-ke-ce-tv Cultural Graduation Ceremony.

The name "V-rak-ke-ce-tv" is the Seminole Creek phrase meaning "to honor" as we seek to honor students' accomplishments through their journey, honor their families and friends for their continued support, and honor what it truly means to be a Seminole.

In an effort to safely celebrate fall 2020 graduates, V-rak-ke-ce-tv will be a virtual ceremony where students, family, and friends can all join in the celebration together. Space is limited, so fall graduates interested in participating are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
