SPRING AND SUMMER GRADUATES
Graduation applications are due within the first 30 days of the semester you intend on completing program requirements.  The Spring 2018 Graduation Application Deadline is February 21, 2018 and Summer 2018 Graduation Application Deadline is March 26, 2018.  You can find the Graduation application online. Accurate and complete DARS Audits must be attached to the application.  You can access your DARS Audit through the eServices site.

FAILURE FOR NON-ATTENDANCE (FN) AND FAILURE TO WITHDRAW (FW)
Instructors may assign students the grades of FN and FW.  The grade designations are for students who never attend a class and students who stop attending a class during the semester but do not officially withdraw.  These grades carry the same weight as a failing grade (F).  Withdrawals from courses where students were assigned an FN or FW cannot be made using the eServices site.  If students are assigned an FN or FW grade prior to the end of the withdraw date for a course, they can still elect to withdraw but must do so in person at the Admissions and Records Office.

STUDENT LIFE
The RCTC Student Life program gives students the opportunity to expand their education beyond the traditional classroom. Students who get involved in extracurricular activities tend to do better in the classroom than those who don’t get involved. Major employers across the nation look for “leadership skills” in prospective hires and being involved with RCTC’s chartered student organizations will give you the opportunity to gain these skills first hand.  In a two-year college, many of the students involved in an activity graduate each year. This means that the opportunity for a freshman to immediately become active is much greater than in a four-year college. Many of the activities may also be taken as a class to earn credit toward a degree.

RCTC students can attend sporting events, concerts and theatre productions free of charge. All RCTC sponsored events are alcohol and drug free.

Check out what is going on with Student Life.  For further information on student activities, contact the Student Life Director, email: studentlife@rctc.edu or call (507) 285-7206.
