How Many Guests May I Bring?

In order to accommodate as many people as possible, we do have to restrict how many guests each participant can bring to the event. Graduates can bring their spouse/partner/co-parent, their children, and 2 additional guests.

Do I Need to Purchase My Own Regalia?

Commencement regalia will be provided for your children to wear while they walk across the stage with you.  We ask that graduates provide their own regalia. If you don't have a gown, we suggest you contact your school to see if they can loan you one.  If you need further assistance please contact the RCSC office.
