This collection includes programs, scripts, and other materials related to commencement ceremonies held at USF St. Petersburg. Please note that the candidates listed in these materials represent individuals who had submitted applications for graduation. However, the presence of a name in a program programs does not necessarily mean that a student met all requirements for graduation during the stated semester.

Graduation celebrations have occurred for USFSP students since the early 1970s. The first celebration included a dinner and program during which candidates for graduation received certificates at the Port-O-Call, a popular hotel and restaurant (now demolished) on Tierra Verde, in 1971. Although similar celebrations occurred during the 1970s and 1980s, no official commencement was offered except at USF Tampa during this time.

The first "official" commencement at USFSP took place in May 1982 along the harborside area of the campus near Davis and Bayboro halls. For the next decade, the only commencements offered at USFSP took place at the end of the Spring terms. The first USFSP December commencement for Fall graduates occurred in December 1993 at the Tradewinds Resort in St. Pete Beach. Since that time, USFSP has regularly offered May and December commencements, usually at the Mahaffey Theater. The May 2002 commencement marked the first time that a freshman class from USFSP earned diplomas when two students from the USFSP College of Education completed their degree requirements.
