Convocation Information 

All graduates and students eligible to graduate will receive emails with information regarding the ceremonies 8-12 weeks prior to the convocation dates. Please make sure your preferred email address is current in your WebAdvisor account.

If you choose not to attend your ceremony your parchment will be mailed to you within a few weeks after the ceremonies. If you have recently moved, please access your WebAdvisor account to change your address. For a name change, please visit one of our Student Service Centre’s with the appropriate documentation confirming the name change.

Application to Graduate

The Application to Graduate is used to advise the College that you have completed all program requirements and are now ready to graduate from your program. Every student, with the exception of Apprenticeship students, must complete an Application to Graduate by the deadline.

You can check your WebAdvisor account to confirm the Registrar’s Office has received your Application to Graduate (under Communication for Student > My Documents). Note that the “Due Date” is the date of your convocation ceremony.

Once your academic record has been reviewed and it is confirmed you have met the graduation requirements for your program, you will either receive your official Transcript of Academic Record or an email to your student email account indicating your transcript and parchment will be issued to you at the convocation ceremony.

If you haven’t received any information from RRC prior to one week before your convocation ceremony, please contact the Student Services Centre.

Please place your gown order online to confirm your attendance – Visa and Mastercard are accepted.

If the deadline date has passed and you would like to attend your convocation ceremony, please arrive at the Centennial Concert Hall 90 minutes before the ceremony with $45 cash (no credit cards or debit cards accepted) to rent your academic attire directly through Gaspard.

The College will subsidize gown rentals for students in financial difficulties, however, funding is limited. Please visit a Student Service Centre if you require assistance.
