It is recommended that students apply early in the academic year as an email will be sent to the student's RCCD email address which will detail the progress and any courses that may still be needed to complete degree or certificate requirements. Students are encouraged to meet with their counselor if there are questions about academic program requirements.
- Students receiving a state approved Certificate of Achievement totaling 18 or more units may participate in the commencement ceremony.
- There is no fee for applying for a degree or certificate.
- If you have any outstanding fees owed to Riverside Community College District you will not be eligible to participate in the commencement ceremony, have your name in the commencement program, or receive your diploma until all outstanding fees have been paid in full.
