I asked Sarah Timko, the academic advisor in the College of Business Student Success Center who handles our graduation processes, to tell us more about how students should get ready for May graduation:

Students who are enrolled in or complete with all academic requirements should apply for graduation through MyNEVADA. Applications for May graduation are due by 5 pm on Wednesday, February 1, 2012. Visit the commencement website for more information.

Students who have 12 credits or less left to complete after the spring semester, but would like to participate in the commencement ceremony, should fill out an Intent to Participate in Commencement form.  The form needs to be turned in to Admissions and Records. 

And, finally—there is a late application process. Go to the Admissions and Records counter on the 3rd floor of the Student Services Building if you are ready to graduate in May but have missed the February 1 application deadline.

Email Sarah at with any graduation-related questions. Congratulations to our May graduates! Have a great semester!

Some important dates are coming up related to registration for and dropping fall semester classes:

Students adding classes September 6-8 must have instructor permission.

September 8 is the last day to drop a class for a 100% refund.

September 8 is the last day to add a class with permission.

Be sure to check with the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships before you drop a class—any registration changes may impact your funding!

Also, if you need an additional class for the fall semester, consider a late start (weekend) class. These classes are more compact sections offered during the fall term.

Finally, fall graduation applications are due Thursday, September 8. Since DARS is only being updated for graduates, you must first apply to see a final DARS! Check with your academic advisor or faculty advisor if you have any questions about your eligibility to graduate. Once you have completed all of your degree requirements and applied for graduation, your DARS will read “All Requirements Complete Pending Current Registration.”
