The walk across the stage, the handshake, the diploma – these are epic moments for our graduates and their families – but without our hundreds of volunteers, RIT’s outstanding Commencement Weekend would not be possible.  Thank you for volunteering for Commencement 2017!

Please review the Volunteer FAQ for important information before completing this form.

Staff in the colleges or other degree granting units please note:  This form is for general volunteer assignments. Please register here only if you are volunteering in addition to assignments required by your college/unit.
