Faculty Regalia Purchase and Rental


  • Only official academic regalia may be worn during the commencement exercises. All commencement items can be purchased through the University Bookstore or online. It is recommended that you purchase your cap and gown early to avoid any unnecessary delay or inconvenience on graduation day.  

    Faculty and staff regalia must be ordered at least six to eight weeks in advance and can be ordered through the University Bookstore.

    The UMES Bookstore will be open Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For more information, please call the Bookstore at (410)-651-6437.
