We honored more than 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students during this spring's commencement ceremonies. Participants ranged in age from 18 to 71 and hail from 37 states, the District of Columbia, and 50 foreign countries.
Approximately 86 percent of the graduates are Nevada residents and more than half – 60 percent – are from ethnically diverse backgrounds. The average overall age of UNLV’s Spring 2019 graduates is 27. Since 1964, UNLV has awarded more than 140,000 degrees.
