Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I get my cap and gown?

All commencement-related materials may be purchased from the UNLV Bookstore. For more information, you can contact them at 702-736-3955.

How do I get my actual diploma?

It will be mailed to the student’s MyUNLV “home” address (or degree address if one has been provided) ten weeks after the ceremony. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure they have an accurate/appropriate address on file.

Can I participate in the May commencement if I am due to complete my classes in the summer?

Spring semester graduates should participate in the May ceremony.

If you would like to participate in a ceremony other than the one designated by your graduation term, you may complete the Lee Business School Commencement sign-up form and will be notified via email after the deadline to apply for graduation for that term.

Can I participate in the December commencement if I am due to complete classes in the spring?

Summer and Fall semester graduates should participate in the December ceremony.

If you would like to participate in a ceremony other than the one designated by your graduation term, you may complete the Lee Business School Commencement sign-up form and will be notified via email after the deadline to apply for graduation for that term.

When should I apply for graduation?

Students should apply for graduation two semesters before the expected date of degree completion. For more information about applying for graduation, please refer to the Registrar’s website.

What is the difference between “applying to graduate” and “signing up to participate in commencement”?

The graduation application process involves UNLV staff reviewing a student’s records to determine if he or she is eligible to graduate. After the student applies for graduation, the Registrar’s Office and the appropriate LEE advisors determine if the student has taken the necessary courses and then begin the process that will allow the student to officially graduate (or that informs the student what requirements must still be met in order to graduate). Applying for graduation does not mean that the student has actually graduated (degree conferral occurs after final grades are received). Additionally, it is ultimately the student’s responsibility to ensure they take the necessary courses in the appropriate timeframe. This process should not be confused with the process of signing up to participate in commencement.

A separate registration will be available to register for attendance in the Lee Business School commencement ceremony. You must apply for UNLV graduation first, then apply for participation in the ceremony.

Is there a charge to apply for graduation? What is a student account?

Upon enrollment, a student account is set up by Cashiering and Student accounts for every UNLV student. Upon applying for graduation, a charge of $75 will be applied to your account. An additional $20 will be applied if you are applying late. Payment may be made in the MyUNLV Student Center.

Does the Lee Business School host its own commencement ceremony separate from the UNLV commencement ceremony?

Lee Business School has hosted its own commencement ceremony in the past. The in-person commencement ceremonies were canceled during the pandemic. Though it's not always an event, the Lee Business School plans something to celebrate graduates each semester. Check the calendar and other information on this page for details.
