Due to the continuing public health risks posed by large gatherings, we, unfortunately, will not be able to hold our traditional in-person commencement ceremony this December. Instead, we will hold virtual ceremonies for spring and winter 2020 graduates in December.
We understand that this news is disappointing for those planning to graduate and your families. Commencement is the most important day in the life of a university and we were looking forward to celebrating in person with you. It is a culmination of your years-long effort to reach an important milestone, an effort that we know has been made more challenging due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The manner in which we celebrate does not diminish your achievement nor its significance, and we will be cheering for you, even from a distance.
Our commencement planning team is working hard to create a virtual experience that honors each of our graduates and captures the spirit and energy of our traditional ceremonies.
Congratulations! You've worked hard here at UNLV, and now it's time to get recognized. Graduation is fast approaching. Before you put on your cap and gown at commencement, follow this checklist to ensure you are on the right track to getting your diploma.
