Doctoral Recognition Ceremony
About the Ceremony
Each spring and fall the Graduate College hosts this reception in celebration of our graduating doctoral candidates. The Doctoral Recognition Ceremony is held in addition to the university Commencement Ceremony and does not replace Commencement.
All graduates that attend the event will be awarded the UNLV Doctoral Honor Cord to be worn at Commencement. Students are hooded at Commencement.
*Note for 2020 and spring 2021: doctoral graduates will be virtually hooded at the Virtual Doctoral Hooding Ceremony. The UNLV Doctoral Honor Cord was/will be mailed to you and may be worn at Commencement.
