Congratulations Class of 2016!
In the Portland Bookstore
Come pick up your cap and gown & enter drawings to win many exciting prizes! There will be vendors and services of interest to new graduates.
We will be selling unpersonalized graduation announcements in our stores.
You can also order them directly from Balfour if you want them personalized.
A representative from Balfour will be showing class rings and taking orders in Portland during the Grad Fair on May 4th.
You can also go to Balfour's website to browse the options and to place an order.
We also offer customization of the moulding type and matting color with Church Hill Classics. To see the options, visit their website and type in "University of Southern Maine" in the upper right-hand corner.
Caps & Gowns
Caps and Gowns are available at the USM Bookstore starting on May 2nd at 10 am.
They are then available in our Portland store until the day before graduation. They are available to pre-order through our website starting in April but they will not be ready for picking up or shipping out until May 2nd.
|A Bachelor's Cap, Gown, and Tassel is $29.95
A Master's Cap, Gown, and Tassel is $33.95
A Master's Hood is $21.95
All Doctoral Graduates will receive an order form. Doctoral Regalia is not available through the website.
Students picking up their Caps and Gowns in the Portland store do not need to pre-order. Just come in on or after May 2nd.
USM's black gowns are 'green' because each one recycles 15 plastic bottles.
Do you need a gift to show a graduate how proud you are? Or maybe you are graduating and need a gift to thank someone for helping you along the way.
