UNLV opened up an online ticket lottery registration for students interested in attending the final presidential debate on Oct. 19 at the Thomas & Mack Center.
Eligible students must meet the following criteria:
  • Enrolled full time (12 credits for undergraduates and 6 credits for graduate students).
  • In good academic standing: minimum of 2.0 GPA for undergraduates and 3.0 for graduate students.
  • Not have any pending/outstanding student conduct violations or disciplinary action.
Tickets will be distributed to current students through a computerized lottery system, as recommended by the Commission on Presidential Debates and consistent with the practice of past debate host sites. 
Tickets will not be available to the public, faculty, alumni, or parents through the university.
The application deadline for the lottery is noon on Oct. 12. Click here for more information.
