Graduation Fee

If you have questions about the graduation fee, please reach out to our Office of Student Accounts at 904-819-6230 or StudentAccounts@flagler.edu. The graduation fee is a one-time, non-refundable fee that is added to each student’s account when they apply to graduate. This is a comprehensive fee, paid when the student applies, regardless of whether they intend to participate in the commencement ceremony. The fee helps offset the cost of the diploma and cover, and all production costs for both in-person and virtual ceremonies. The fee also supports administrative costs incurred during the degree application and review process, as well as the actual ceremony, including staff support from Office of the Registrar, Student Accounts, Special Events, and Academic Affairs.
