Not even a pandemic could stop us from honoring and celebrating our 2020 graduates! While we can’t be together to celebrate this milestone in your educational journey, today is still the perfect day for acknowledging the sacrifices you made to achieve your goals.
On behalf of the entire FTC community, congratulations! Graduates, you made it. You set your mind towards the goal of having this degree, and you made it.
Once it is safe to do, we plan to host an in-person celebration. When a new date is chosen, we will post that information here. We look forward to the day when we come back together again to commemorate your accomplishments!

Message from Dr. James M. Burkett and Leiby Adames-Boom
We are incredibly proud of the response that our students and our academic team has shown during the COVID-19 outbreak. Never in our institution’s more than 35-year history, have we ever faced a scenario quite like this. We want to thank each of you for maintaining your academic progress, participating in community and campus initiatives, and for your collaboration with our college during this period.
These challenging times have led to some difficult decisions for everyone to adapt to this unprecedented situation and we are all putting forth an effort to keep our communities safe. With this in mind, for the safety of our students, our staff, and our family and friends, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our commencement ceremony, scheduled on June 6, 2020, at the Amway Center.
We recognize that graduation represents the culmination of all of your hard work, determination, and personal sacrifice. Once we are able to host the graduation gathering safely, we will begin to plan the next event and our 2020 graduates will be included in this traditional ceremonial celebration.
Diplomas are delivered to the campus 6-8 weeks from the date of graduation, once we receive them we notify graduates to arrange for pick-up. However, we are aware that some may not be able to personally pick-up your diplomas. Therefore, Student Services Coordinators will be receiving your diplomas at the campus and will begin to package them and have them mailed to your homes. Please ensure that we have your accurate mailing address by notifying the campus Student Services Coordinator.
Each campus will be preparing special recognitions for our graduates, please stay tuned to those future communications.
We look forward to celebrating your academic and career success! Go FTC and stay #FTC STRONG.
Dr. James M. Burkett
President of FTC, DAVE & FTC-Continuing Education
VP of Academic Affairs of FTC, DAVE & FTC-Continuing Education
