The Grad Fair is your one stop shop for all your graduation needs. Learn more about how to pick up your cap and gown.  Order your class ring and graduation announcements.  Shop Diploma Frames and graduation gifts.  Interact with a representative from Flyer Student Services to check your major, minor and name pronunciation for the commencement ceremony.  Receive valuable information from Career Services, Alumni Relations, and more!

The Fall 2023 Grad Fair will be held on Wednesday, October 11, 2023! It is held at the UD Bookstore. All Summer and Fall graduates are highly encouraged to attend, as this is your opportunity to pick up your cap and gown and visit with offices across campus. 

Please note: Students do not need to purchase their caps and gowns at the Grad Fair, as the cost as already been factored in via general University costs and the graduate/doctoral graduation fee. Thank you!
