We are excited to recognize our 2020 and 2021 graduates in a virtual commencement ceremony that will premiere on June 23, at 6 p.m.! Bookmark our Virtual Commencement Page so you're ready to watch the premier.

Virtual Commencement Ceremony

While we hoped to celebrate in person this year, we must continue to take precautions to maintain a safe and vibrant campus community. Working with our vendor EnvisionPro, we will make this year's graduation a fun way to honor our students' achievements and allow their friends, family, and the RTC community to safely and conveniently watch the ceremony. To recognize and celebrate all our 2020 and 2021 graduates during this year's virtual commencement, we are asking students to complete the three-step application process below by June 14th to apply for graduation, request cap/gowns sizes, and upload their information into the student portal:

STEP 1: APPLY FOR GRADUATION/DIPLOMA REQUEST

Degree/Certificate: Apply for graduation.

If students are completing their degree/certificate in Spring 2021 or Summer 2021, they should apply for graduation. When students complete the graduation application, the RTC Enrollment Services team will confirm that each student has completed all requirements of their degree/certificate, update their transcripts, and mail their printed diploma (separately from their diploma cover and cap/gown). 

To apply for graduation, students can visit this link: RTC Graduation Application.

High School: Request your diploma.

When you complete the requirements for your high school diploma, your teachers inform the RTC Enrollment Services staff. However, you still have to request that your printed diploma be mailed to you.

Request your printed diploma:

STEP 2: REQUEST YOUR CAP & GOWN + DIPLOMA COVER!

The RTC Associated Student Government has purchased caps and gowns for our 2021 RTC graduates and students can request their size using the link below, and schedule a time for pick-up at our campus beginning the week of June 14th. We will also include each student's diploma cover (these are traditionally given on stage during the commencement ceremony) with their cap and gown during pick-up. 

To request caps/gowns and the diploma cover, students can use this link: RTC Class of 2021 Cap & Gowns

STEP 3: ACCESS YOUR STUDENT PORTAL

To access their student portal, students must first apply for graduation. After they have submitted their graduation application, they will receive an RTC branded email and link from our vendor, EnvisionPro to access their student portal and upload their information. We encourage students to send and share appropriate pictures, quotes and comments and have included a helpful guide on taking photos.

(Please see our helpful tips on taking photos here: Graduation Photo Tips)

Note: All graduation applications will be processed at the end of each quarter. Please allow 4-6 weeks after the end of the quarter for processing.
