Marketplace and Commencement Fair

The Commencement Fair is designed to answer questions concerning your graduation needs. You will be able to visit with representatives from the Alumni Office and the Career Resources Center, pay for and pick up your regalia (cap, gown and tassel), as well as order your University of the Pacific ring. We will be able to serve all your needs at one time and in one place.  If you are unable to attend the Commencement Fair, please visit the vendors' websites below or contact the University Bookstore directly to place your order.

Commencement Fair

Location: University Bookstore - Stockton Campus
Time: Wednesday - 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. (extended hours)  |  Thursday - 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Graduation photos
GradImages will be on-site taking portraits at the Stockton campus Commencement Fair. There is no obligation to purchase these photographs.  Free proofs of all images will be e-mailed and mailed to you, so there is no need to make your purchasing decision on that day. In addition, Commencement regalia will be provided for you to use in your photos. If you decide to purchase photos, please visit after receiving your emailed proofs. 

Cap and Gown
Every graduate is required to wear a formal black cap and gown for the Commencement Ceremony on Saturday and the Diploma and Hooding Ceremony for your school/college. They may be purchased at the Pacific Bookstore on the Stockton Campus. Starting Wednesday, March 6, graduates can pick up their graduation attire (cap/gown/tassel/hood) and they will be available through the day of graduation. We recommend that you come in at least two weeks prior to graduation, to ensure that your size is available. If you are unable to pick up the cap and gown, please call 209.460.3875 or email for further instructions. In addition to cap and gown purchases, students may also order class rings and graduation announcements in advance at the Pacific Bookstore. Student Regalia Price Sheet

Graduation announcements
Graduation announcements must be ordered in advance if you desire to personalize the invitations. Personalized announcements require 2 weeks for processing. Generic announcements will also be available.  Both can be purchased at the Pacific Bookstore. The University works with both CB Graduation Announcements and Signature Announcements.

College Ring
The Official Ring of the University of the Pacific is a timeless, tangible symbol of the bond between all Pacific graduates and the institution that contributed so much to shaping their future successes. You can order your personalized Official Ring at the Commencement Fair in March or on the Balfour website.

Graduation flowers
For your convenience, the University Bookstore as well as Pacific students will be selling fresh flowers at each ceremony.
