Regalia & Tickets


The University Book Center (UBC), 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 October 10, 2018, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the Grad Fair hosted by the UBC. The deadline to purchase regalia is November 2, 2018. After this date, the selection of sizes and hood colors will be limited. Please purchase your regalia during the Grad Fair!

If you have any students that are unable to attend the Grad Fair because of location, internships, etc., we have exciting news! Regalia can now be ordered online! Only packages are available for purchase online.

Michelle Foster, operations manager, oversees all commencement needs at the UBC. Michelle can be reached via email at or by phone at 301-405-9478.
