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.
