Important Information Regarding Commencement

Cap & Gown Pick Up Day

The Cap and Gown Pick Up Day is Thursday, April 21 from 9 AM to 6 PM at Lot 6 (near JCSM). Cap and Gown is required for all graduates participating in the RVC Commencement, so please plan on pick up at the above date and time. Questions? Email

A detailed informational sheet will be issued to all participants at the Cap and Gown Pick Up Day, including line-up locations/times, guest information and much, much more.

If you are a member of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), you may wear the PTK stole and tassel for the ceremony. You will need to purchase these items ahead of time directly from the PTK website using your member log-in info.

Ceremony Tickets

Tickets are required for guests to attend the Commencement Ceremony. We are hopeful that a minimum of four tickets will be available per participant, but the number of tickets issued is directly related to the number of ceremony participants. Tickets will be issued at the Cap and Gown Pick Up Day.

The Commencement Ceremony will be streaming live in the Student Center Atrium for those guests who do not have a ticket for admittance into the PEC. This will allow others to view the Commencement Ceremony simultaneously from the Student Center Atrium. Additional information regarding the ceremony streaming will be available at the Cap and Gown Pick Up Day.
