Regalia & Tickets


The University Book Center, located in the Stamp Student Union, is where you can purchase your graduate cap and gown and diploma frames. You can purchase all your commencement needs on March 6-8, 2018, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the Grad Fair hosted by the UBC. The deadline to purchase regalia is April 6, 2018. After this date, the selection of sizes and hood colors will be limited. Please purchase your regalia during the Grad Fair!

If students are unable to attend the Grad Fair because of location, internships, etc., they must submit an order form to order regalia. This form must be faxed and cannot be accepted via email. Any student using the form must have the items shipped; we are unable to store regalia for pickup at the store.

Michelle Foster, Operations Manager, oversees all of commencement needs at the UBC. Michelle can be reached at or 301-405-9478.
