Bakersfield College Grad Fair 2024

BC's renegade campus store inside with graduation cap, gown and stole display

Wednesday, March 27, 2024

BC Graduates! We are excited to announce the dates for Grad Fair 2024! 

Students, need to order your cap and gown? 

Known as regalia, our graduation attire: cap, gown, stole, and tassel, can be purchased in the Bakersfield College Bookstore, located on the Panorama Campus, or online. 

Regalia can be purchased in a package or separately, if you already have some parts. Please remember that students must wear the traditional black cap and gown with the Bakersfield College stole and tassel to participate in commencement. 

Kindly proceed to the Online Campus Store for online purchases. In-store purchases will continue up until Graduation week while supplies last.  

You must schedule an appointment for portraits through Ultimate Exposures. You will receive further instructions once an appointment time has been scheduled.

Congratulations on your accomplishment! See you at Commencement.
