To receive a Graduate College Medallion, graduate and professional students must earn at least 100 points from the point system below before their graduation. When a student has completed at least 100 points, he/she will submit a Medallion Completion form. The form must be signed by their graduate faculty advisor and department chair/coordinator. Students will then submit the form to the Graduate College for review and verification. Students should only submit a form the semester they are graduating. In addition, students must have a minimum 3.75 GPA in their final semester.
Students who are graduating in Fall 2017 must submit the Completion form to email@example.com by Monday, November 27. If the minimum point requirements have been successfully earned, students will be awarded a medallion either at the Doctoral Recognition Ceremony (doctoral students only) or they will need to pick them up from the Graduate College Front Office (FDH #352; master’s students).
Students who are graduating in Spring 2018 must submit the Completion form to firstname.lastname@example.org by Jan. 29, 2018. If the minimum point requirements have been successfully earned, students will be awarded a medallion at the Inspiration, Innovation, Impact: A Celebration of Graduate Student Research Reception. Students who are graduating in Fall 2018 must submit the Completion form to email@example.com by Sept. 12, 2018. If the minimum point requirements have been successfully earned, students will be awarded a medallion at the Graduate Student Showcase during Research Week.
Only points earned within the last six years of concurrent enrollment as a graduate student at UNLV will count towards the program.
This program celebrates graduate and professional students commitments to being both involved and engaged with the wider campus community. Through participation in Graduate College sponsored programs, events, and professional development opportunities, students become strong, collaborative leaders at the university and beyond.
The Graduate College Distinguished Service Medallion represents a prestigious award conferred by the UNLV Graduate College to alumni and/or community members. Dean Korgan and Graduate College team members choose individuals to be the recipient of this award. It is bestowed upon individuals who have performed “above and beyond the call of duty” in service to the Graduate College.
