Master's and Doctoral degree candidates can purchase Commencement regalia at the Penn Bookstore during Grad Fair from March 20-22. The regalia is a commemorative keepsake. There is no longer an option for students to rent regalia. All regalia will be distributed on the second level of the Penn Bookstore near the textbook department. Staff members will be on hand to answer questions. Other grad-related products and special promotions will also be available during that week.
A limited number of caps and gowns will still be available at the Penn Bookstore after the above dates, but graduates are strongly encouraged to obtain their regalia at the bookstore during Grad Fair, when the store's resources are dedicated to this process. Doctoral candidates should consult with their respective Schools or programs as there may be special requirements or recommendations regarding the preferred regalia. Both standard and custom doctoral regalia are available for purchase, but custom regalia is not required.
Degree candidates not currently on campus can order regalia online and have regalia shipped directly to them. Orders must be placed by Sunday, March 31, to receive the regalia in time for Commencement. Shipping fees apply. To order regalia, visit Grad Express.
For additional details about regalia and information about purchasing announcements, commemorative products, and alumni benefits, all graduates are encouraged to visit Grad Express.
