Students wishing to apply for graduation can do so by logging into the RCSJ Portal and selecting “Self-Serve.” Once there, select the tab at the top of the page entitled, “Student” and select “Student Records” from the choices provided. From there, select the link labeled, “Apply to Graduate” and complete the online form.
RCSJ prohibits items that obstruct the view of others during the Commencement ceremony. These items include umbrellas and balloons.
As a safety precaution, large bags are not permitted and College Safety and Security reserves the right to prohibit any individual items deemed dangerous in the Commencement venue.

Inclement Weather Plan- Gloucester Campus
If there is inclement weather on May 14, the Gloucester Commencement will be
moved to May 15 at 11:00am. If there is still inclement weather on May 15, the
Commencement ceremony will be split into two ceremonies and they will be held
in the Physical Education Center Gymnasium. The split ceremonies will be held
at 11:00am and 4:00pm and will be sorted by academic division. Student arrival
times and lineup locations will be announced at the Grad Breakfast. It
is very important that you check the webpage for updates.
Each student will be given two rain tickets when they pick up their cap and
gown to be used if the event is moved indoors due to inclement weather.
Admission to the gymnasium will be by RAIN ticket only, due to limited seating
capacity — two tickets per graduate. When the gymnasium has reached its
capacity, your guests may be diverted, for their own safety, to an alternate viewing
area on RCSJ Gloucester’s campus.
