What to Expect

At Grad Fest, we'll provide you with important information about what to expect on commencement day. There will also be opportunities to win door prizes (such as diploma frames and more) and a fun selfie station to take pictures.

Because commencement is offered free of charge to students, Grad Fest is where you can also pick up your free:

  • Cap and Gown
  • BC Approved Active Duty Military and Veterans Stoles
  • PTK and Honor Student Tassels and Stoles 
  • Graduation Announcements*

You can also learn about joining the Former Students Association and order a class ring from Balfour.

If you are unable to attend Grad Fest, please contact the Registrar's Office at or (979) 230-3000.

*Each graduate will receive a limited number of invitations free of charge. Extra invitations may be available for pick up after Grad Fest.
