Commencement

CommencementCarmencement Ceremony 2021

June 19, 2021

Graduates are invited to decorate their cars and participate in a "Carmencement," a drive-thru processional winding through the Redwood (Grants Pass) campus, that includes an opportunity to walk across the commencement stage.

The ceremony will start at 9 a.m. and graduates will have staggered arrival times in order to help traffic flow smoothly.

Graduates from both the graduating classes of 2020 and 2021 are invited to attend. A map of the parade route will be mailed to attendees and is also available in PDF.

ARRIVAL TIMES

There are six arrival times (9:00 a.m., 9:30am, 10:00 a.m., 10:30am, 11:00 a.m. and 11:30 am).

Students will be limited to one car per graduate. Friends and family who fit safely in the graduate’s vehicle will be able to attend. If you would like to carpool with a fellow graduate, both graduates still need to sign up for an arrival time. We recommend that the graduates are passengers in the vehicle to allow for a continuous flow of traffic.

Registration/RSVP for your Carmencement arrival time is open now!

To RSVP and sign up for your arrival time, you will log into your myRogue account and click on “Register for Classes.” Make sure your term is set to Summer Term 2021 and then search for course number “9.007” or course title “RCC Car-mencement RSVP”.

Find the time you would like to register for and click the “Add” button next to the course and then follow the normal process for registration.  You can only register for one arrival time.  If you need to change your time, you will first need to drop the class you are registered for and then add the new section.
