RCC Commencement

Commencement at RCC

June 18, 2022

Ceremony 2022

Graduates are invited to decorate their cars and participate in a "Car-mencement," a drive-thru processional winding through the Redwood (Grants Pass) campus, that includes an opportunity to walk across the commencement stage.

The ceremony will start at 9 a.m. and graduates will have staggered arrival times in order to help traffic flow smoothly.

Graduates from the class of 2022 are invited to attend. Click the link to download a PDF of the parade route.


You may register now for Car-mencement via MyRogue. There are 10 arrival times, starting at 9 a.m.

To RSVP, log into your MyRogue account and click on "Register for Classes." Make sure your term is set to Summer Term 2022 and search for course number "9.007" or course title "RCC Car-mencement RSVP."

Students will be limited to one car per graduate. Friends and family who fit safely in the graduate’s vehicle will be able to attend. If you would like to carpool with a fellow graduate, both graduates still need to sign up for an arrival time. We recommend that the graduates are passengers in the vehicle to allow for a continuous flow of traffic.


If you are in need of transportation to campus for the event, please contact Sally Snyder at [email protected] or call 541-956-7187.


The bookstore now has a limited supply of caps & tassels available to order. The last day to submit an order is June 9th at 4 p.m.


If you qualify to graduate with honors, you may buy an honor cord online through the RCC Marketplace. Eligible students who applied before April 19th should have received an email with the access code. Students who are eligible and applied after April 19th will see the access code in their Degree Audit evaluation notes. Due to shipping times, the deadline to order honor cords is June 3 at 4:00 p.m.
To find out if you qualify for an honor cord, at the end of Winter 2022, follow this link to check your cumulative GPA. 


If you are a member of the Alpha Zeta Pi honors society, and have applied for graduation by May 7, AZP will mail you a gold graduation stole. If you have questions about your AZP stole, please contact Nicole Kieffer ([email protected])


Commencement programs will be available to graduates attending Car-mencement.
