Deadlines for Graduation • Commencement 

Application deadlines for Fall and Spring commencements are October 1 and February 1 respectively. Summer graduates should apply by August 1. The registrar must receive transcripts from other institutions by the application deadline. If transcripts have not been received by the appropriate date, the student may be moved to a subsequent commencement ceremony, provided all documentation has been received.


Graduation Audit

Upon receiving a student’s graduation application, the Office of the Registrar conducts an official graduation audit. A graduation audit letter will be sent to the student’s RC email account within four weeks of submitting a graduation application to confirm progress toward graduation.


Students who graduate in August and December are invited to participate in RC’s Winter Commencement ceremony, and students who graduate in April are invited to participate in the Spring Commencement ceremony.
