Apply for Graduation

To obtain a degree or certificate from Rockland Community College, students must apply for graduation. Students who believe they have met all degree requirements must complete the online Application for Graduation form in order to notify Records & Registration to review their academic history. Records & Registration will notify the student of their eligibility for graduation or outline the student’s remaining course requirements.

In order to have your name appear in the Commencement Ceremony program, a potential Spring 2024 graduate must complete the Application for Graduation by May 3, 2024. Applications may be completed after the deadline but your name may not appear in the Commencement program.

Minimum Requirements

  • Minimum of a 2.00 GPA is required for graduation
  • Degree-seeking graduates are required to have 60+ credits and certificate-seeking students must have 25+ credits
