Important Application Information For First-Time Freshman ONLY

Because the number of admitted applicants who have committed to enroll at UNLV for the fall term have exceeded our expectations, we will be making fewer offers than we have in the past to students that apply after our standard deadline of July 1.

Qualified applicants who cannot be accommodated for the fall term will be guaranteed admission for either the Spring or Fall, 2016 semester. There will be no need to reapply. Please contact the Office of Admissions for more information at 702-774-8658.
