Each spring and fall the Graduate College hosts a reception in celebration of the semester's graduating doctoral candidates. The Doctoral Recognition Ceremony is held in addition to the university Commencement Ceremony and does not replace commencement.
All graduates who attend the event will be awarded the UNLV Doctoral Honor Cord to be worn at Commencement. Students are hooded at commencement.
Please RSVP by Wednesday, May 6.
Doctoral candidates are to wear their tam and gown (please do not wear your hood). For academic faculty, regalia is optional, but encouraged.
Family and friends are invited to join students at the Doctoral Recognition Ceremony. Please include a guest count when you RSVP for the event.
