Excellence in scholastic achievement is recognized each semester by compiling a Dean’s List. To qualify for the Dean’s List, a student must successfully complete at least 12 college-level credits in the same semester, with a minimum term grade point average of 3.0 or better. Additionally, the credit courses completed must have earned grade points. Credits for P and grades of I, AU, and W are excluded from the count. These lists are posted in the Admissions and Records area and at the Heintz Center, as well as distributed to local media. Students obtaining a GPA of 3.5 and above on the Dean’s List also receive a letter from the College honoring their achievement. Students obtaining a GPA of 4.0 receive a certificate. A listing can also be downloaded from the College website at: www.rctc.edu/about/html/Deans-list.html. The list should be available after January 15
CHECKING FALL GRADES
RCTC hopes you had a tremendously successful semester. As it draws to a close, please note the Admissions and Records Office anticipates all final Fall 2017 grades being submitted and calculated by Friday, December 22nd. These grades can be viewed in the grades and transcripts section of the college eServices site. To view your grades after Dec. 22, login: http://www.rctc.edu/eservices/cover-your-assets.html.
Any grades not posted to your eServices account have not been reported by a faculty member. Please contact the instructor of your class to inquire when s/he will post any missing grades.
Your degree will be posted to your transcript about 2 weeks after all final grades have been posted. Awards will be printed and mailed to your permanent address on file in the Admissions Office approximately 6 weeks later. RCTC holds one Commencement Ceremony per academic year (in May) and you can find commencement information at http://www.rctc.edu/admissions/html/graduation_commencement.html later in the Spring semester. It will be important for you to read the material and follow the directions, including submitting your RSVP in April, if you plan on attending. Congratulations on completing your degree at RCTC!
BOOK BUY BACK ENDS FRIDAY! DON’T MISS OUT!
RCTC’s Textbook Sell Back and Rental Check In will be end on Friday, December 15. Don’t miss your chance to sell back those unwanted books. The last day to return rental books is also Friday, December 15. Return your books by 4:30pm. Student ID is required!
STUDENT SENATE TAKES AIM AT ENDING STUDENT HUNGER
RCTC has a food pantry for students, but Student Senate President Sarah Brakebill-Hacke decided that wasn’t enough after witnessing how students gobbled up pizza during an on-campus meeting.
To combat hunger, she and the RCTC Student Senate voted to shift $20,000 of reserve funds to emergency food aid for the student body to help rectify the issue.

EQUIPMENT RETURN REMINDER
As the semester nears conclusion, remember to return any equipment checked out from the Technology Support Center. The due date for cameras, video recording gear, and other equipment is Friday, December 15, 2017. Equipment not returned by this date and time will be declared lost, your student account will be charged for replacement costs, and a hold will be placed on your academic records.
You will be allowed to use the gear in the upcoming semester as long as you are enrolled in a specific program that requires you to use such equipment or if it is general media gear for classroom usage.
