Caps and Gowns
On-campus students must order their caps and gowns by March 3, 2024 @ 11:59 p.m. EST through https://buildagrad.com/sjc. Students can pick them up at the “Senior Send-Off Fair” - April 16 + 17 in Baggot Street. Students must have their student ID to get their cap and gown. If students are unable to attend the fair, they must pick up their regalia from Shanna Webster, Academic Center for Excellence Office (located on 3rd floor of Alfond Hall Office #325).
Online graduates should apply for graduation through the Registrar’s Office and should order their caps and gowns by March 3, 2024 @ 11:59 p.m. EST through https://buildagrad.com/sjc. Caps and gowns for online students will be shipped directly to them.
If you need to make arrangements for accessibility seating and parking, you will need to contact the Office of the Registrar at 207-893-7798 no later than April 26th regarding accessible parking and seating for guests with limited mobility. Please note: Special seating is limited to the individual with the mobility issue and one family member. You will need to show your special passes.
Each graduate will be handed a Saint Joseph's College diploma cover during the ceremony. It will contain a blank diploma with a congratulatory message instructing the graduate that their diploma will be mailed to them once they have been cleared by the Office of the Registrar and Student Accounts.
The road that the College is located on, Whites Bridge Road, can get backed up on the morning of Commencement. You could experience some delays. Be sure to give yourself enough time. We suggest that you arrive on campus as early as you can. We recommend that you arrive before 9 a.m.
Parking will be available on campus. Due to the considerable need for parking, we ask that you and your guests carpool to campus on Saturday. This will help to improve our parking and traffic situation. You will enter the campus from Whites Bridge Road. As you proceed there will be staff to show you the way. Please do not stop your car to ask questions at the entrance, as this will bring the traffic flow to a halt.
