Purchasing a Robe
Graduating students must wear an academic robe to participate in the commencement ceremony. Robing arrangements are made through the Penn State Berks Bookstore (610-396-6100).
"Keeper gowns," which include gown, mortarboard, and tassel, may be purchased for $40.00, plus tax, and will be available until April 26, 2013. Extra tassels are also available at $4.00 each.
Please notify Maria Moceri in the Registrar's Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are planning to participate in the commencement ceremony and already have a Cap and Gown no later than Friday, April 26, 2013.
For your convenience, personalized graduation announcements can be ordered through the Bookstore. The Bookstore carries Penn State "thank you" cards and diploma frames.
The Bookstore will be open from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on the day of commencement.
