Purchasing a Robe

An academic robe must be worn to participate in the commencement ceremony. Robing arrangements are made through the Penn State Berks Bookstore (610-396-6100). Gowns, including gown, mortarboard, and tassel, may be purchased for $40.00, plus tax, and will be available through Friday, April 27, 2018. Extra tassels are also available at $4.00 each.

Those planning to participate in the commencement ceremony, but not planning to order a cap and gown from the Penn State Berks Bookstore, must notify Maria Moceri in the Registrar's Office ([email protected] or 610-396-6087) no later than Friday, April 27, 2018.

For your convenience, personalized commencement announcements can be ordered through the Bookstore.  The Bookstore carries Penn State "thank you" cards and diploma frames. 

On the day of commencement, the bookstore will be open from 7:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. and following the commencement ceremony.
