Rowan College at Gloucester County


Congratulations from RCGC!

In May of each year the college hosts a commencement ceremony that graduates of the fall, winter, spring and summer terms. Prospective graduates who have petitioned to graduate, and have been reviewed to meet the graduation requirements are invited to walk in commencement.

During the commencement ceremony, graduates receive the jacket that holds their diploma; however, the official diploma is not received at this time. Official diplomas are sent out for professional printing with embossed RCGC logo which requires six weeks to process. After all final grades are entered, the Office of Advisement certifies graduates and the Office of Student Records awards the graduates each term.

Key dates for each of the five graduation terms are below:

Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer (June and August)

  • May 2018 Graduates: Official Diplomas are available to be picked up beginning Monday, July 9, 2018 at the Office of Student Records, Student Services building.

    • Please note, when picking up in person, your photo ID is required to receive your diplomas and FREE graduate transcript. 
    • Diplomas that are not picked up in-person prior to Thursday, July 19, 2018 will be mailed on Monday, July 23, 2018

  • Summer 2018 Graduates: Official Diplomas will be mailed on August 27, 2018 for classes ending June 14, 2018; for classes ending after June 14, 2018 diplomas will be mailed on October 29, 2018.

  • Fall 2018 Graduates: Official Diplomas will be mailed March 15, 2019

  • Winter 2018 Graduates:  Official Diplomas were mailed April 2, 2018

  • Confirm your address is up to date! ALL students are required to verify that their address is correct on the RCGC portal to ensure they receive their diploma/transcript via USPS.
    • Go in person to Student Records to update your address immediately
