AAP A 99-YEAR-OLD Maine woman has graduated from college 75 years after a $US5 ($A5.41) fee kept her from getting her diploma on time. Beal College in Bangor awarded Jessie White her degree during a special ceremony on Friday hosted by Alan Stehle, the college's president. White told ABC News that the special ceremony was wonderful and a lot of fun. White was supposed to graduate in 1939, but couldn't afford the $5 transcript fee.
