Cap & Gown
Rosa Campus Bookstore will carry caps and gowns, available in late
April for participants in the graduation ceremony. Announcements will
also be available individually or in groups of ten.
SRJC Graduation Identification Cards should be completed at the SRJC Bookstore
when you purchase your cap and gown. Be sure to fill out and return. These
will be used to read your name at the ceremony.
Ceremony and Lineup
The Graduation Ceremony (for which there is NO rehearsal) will be held
on the campus near the outdoor stage. Participants should arrive at the
north entrance of Tauzer Gym by 9:30
AM, May 25 in your cap and gown.
Your ID cards will be returned to you as you check in on graduation day. (If you have not filled one out, be sure to do so.) Students will be asked to keep ID cards with them as they form lines along the west side of Garcia (double file) in lines extending from the Garcia Hall doorway south toward Tauzer Gym.
Graduates rise a row at a time, file to the front of the outdoor stage,
and present their Identification Cards to the two members of the college
staff who will alternate reading student names and other information
from the ID card. Graduates then move across to the President
of the College and the President of the Board of Trustees who will present
diplomas (case only) and a handshake. Students
will then continue around the rear of the platform, receive a commemorative
SRJC oak seedling, and return to their seats. Ushers will be located nearby
to direct students through this process, so do not be concerned. We have
not lost anyone yet! If you are unable to attend the graduation ceremony your diploma will be mailed to you in late July.
