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 through December 7, 2015. Extra tassels are also available at $4.00 each.

Please notify Maria Moceri in the Registrar's Office (mqm1@psu.edu) if you are planning to participate in the commencement ceremony and already have a Cap and Gown no later than December 7, 2015.

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