Caps, Gowns, Rings, and Announcements

Get Your Regalia

Caps and gowns are a traditional part of the graduation experience.

The bookstore will sponsor a Graduation Fair on the Fairfax Campus in Dewberry Hall, November 9-11 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Balfour and Herff Jones will be available to take orders for class rings and personalized announcements.

You can also buy regalia online, as well as order a diploma frame, yard sign, or additional Mason products.

If you miss the Graduation Fair, you can still buy regalia in the Mason Bookstore on the Fairfax and  Arlington campuses. 

Contact the bookstore if you have questions about regalia or any graduation product.
