Graduate or Alumnus: what’s the difference?

RRC Graduate (“grads”)

Any individual who has graduated with a credential (i.e., has convocated) from a Red River College program (and whose status is in good standing with the College). This would include Apprenticeship graduates as of 2013. All graduates are confirmed by the Office of the Registrar.

RRC Alumnus (“alumni”)

In addition to those individuals included in the first two categories, this wider definition also includes anyone who has taken and successfully completed at least one course, session or semester towards a program (either in person, part-time, online, etc.) taught at/via Red River College. Note: this includes Apprenticeship Manitoba students prior to 2013.

Honorary RRC Alumnus

Any individual who receives an honorary degree or diploma from Red River College solely as a result of their significant, positive accomplishments and contributions to our community.
