All graduation applicants for December 2014 and May 2015 must complete an application on WebAdvisor. December graduates can start applying for graduation by Sept. 1 and must apply by Dec. 11.
There is no ceremony for the December graduation. December graduates will be invited to the May ceremony.
When: Friday, May 15, 2015
Where: The Santander Arena – 700 Penn St., Reading, PA
Time: 2 p.m.
The commencement ceremony will be broadcast live on the college website at www.racc.edu. Please note: In case of technical difficulties, the broadcast will run "on demand" a few days later.
- Guests will be allowed to enter The Santander Arena beginning at 1 p.m.
- The Santander Arena does not allow any type of balloons to be brought in for the ceremony.
- Commencement is a special event; you should dress appropriately for the occasion. (Jeans, shorts and sneakers are not considered appropriate attire.)
Since Commencement occurs immediately following the end of the semester, the College is unable to issue your diploma until final grades have been submitted and your transcript evaluated and certified by the Registrar. Your diploma will be sent first class by US mail. The diploma will include an honor seal determined at the end of the semester in which you completed your final requirements. If you are in Phi Theta Kappa, that seal will also appear on your diploma. In addition to your diploma, a complimentary copy of your transcript will be mailed to you for review.
December graduates: There is no ceremony. Degrees will be conferred in December and you will receive an invitation to May’s ceremony.
May and August graduates: If you did not attend the May ceremony, you will also receive a red diploma case.
Balance on Account - All debts to the College must be paid before diplomas will be released. Call the Cashier’s office at 610-607-6235 to resolve any outstanding balances.
Moving - In the event you will be leaving the area following graduation, please email Holly Kline at HKline@racc.edu. Include your ID number, the address to which you wish your diploma mailed, and a contact phone number.
Evaluating the large number of students for graduation may take several weeks after you complete your last class/requirement for the degree. If you do not receive your diploma by Feb. 17 (December graduates), Aug. 1 (May graduates) or Sept. 30 (August graduates), email Holly Kline immediately at HKline@racc.edu. Please include your name and ID number.
