Academic Calendar 2019-2020

Extended Deadlines

The College is extending certain deadlines to better accommodate your needs.

  • The last day to withdraw from a spring class is extended to Friday, April 17. However, we encourage you to speak with your Academic Advisor before making the decision to withdraw as it may affect your financial aid and academic progress.
  • The last day to complete an incomplete class from the Fall 2019 or Winter 2020 semesters is also extended to Friday, April 17.
  • Registration for Summer 2020 classes will begin on Monday, April 20.
  • To provide a better registration experience for our students and allow sufficient time to execute the Reopening Plan, Fall 2020 registration is temporarily postponed. Once the new registration date for fall is available, notification will be shared widely through email, our website, social media, and the myRCC portal.


The College has extended the Spring 2020 Deadline to Request a Pass/Fail Grade to June 1, 2020.

If you wish to be graded for any Spring 2020 course using a Pass/Fail format, you must receive approval from your Instructor and complete the Request for a Pass/Fail Grade form.

Please complete the form no later than 5:00 pm on June 1, and forward it to the Instructor of each course in which you wish to be graded on a Pass/Fail format. The Instructor will forward the form with his/her approval to the Records Office. You must complete a separate form for each course that you wish to be changed to a Pass/Fail format.

Please be aware of the following possible ramifications of changing your grading format to Pass/Fail:

  • A Pass grade has no effect on your term or cumulative GPA.
  • A Fail grade acts the same way as an "F" grade and negatively affects your term and cumulative GPA.
  • A course with a Pass grade may not be transferable to other colleges; each college has differing policies for transferring in courses with a Pass grade.
  • Due to disruptions in instruction this semester, the policy limiting Pass/Fail credits to 8 credits in your program of study has been waived by the Board of Trustees.

Note: a Financial Aid approval signature is not required on the Request for a Pass/Fail Grade form. Changing one or more courses to a Pass/Fail format has no effect on your Spring 2020 financial aid
