Deadline April 24: Nominate Outstanding Graduating Student for Recognition at Commencement

The UNLV Commencement Committee is still accepting nominations for Outstanding Graduates to be recognized during undergraduate and graduate commencement ceremonies scheduled for May 10 and 11 at the Thomas & Mack Center.

Please help us continue this long-standing campus tradition by nominating a graduating student who represents the academic, research, and community impact of the Spring 2024 graduating class.


  • Both undergraduate and graduate students can be nominated, but they must be eligible to participate in the Spring 2024 Commencement.
  • Students can be nominated for outstanding academic or personal successes, including significant research work, academic performance, and/or community service.
  • Students also can be nominated for achieving their academic goals while overcoming an obstacle in life.

Please send a detailed submission to the Commencement Committee by 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 24, through the nomination form on the UNLV Commencement website.

We ask that you please be as thorough in your description as possible as the details included in your nomination will be very important in determining the next group of outstanding UNLV graduates.
