Early Studies Program
The UNLV Early Studies Program provides highly motivated Clark County high school students an opportunity to get a head start on their college education by enrolling in UNLV courses. Early Studies students have the opportunity to earn dual credit (university and high school) with the approval of their high school counselor. In addition, Early Studies students receive full access to the Academic Success Center resources, which includes tutoring, advising, and academic success coaching. The Early Study Program attracts some of the best and brightest students in Clark County and creates a more streamlined bridge from their high school to UNLV. High school students of all levels (Freshman through Senior) are eligible for the program. There is no high school GPA requirement, but the ASC strongly recommends the program for students with a 3.0 GPA or higher. Early Studies students are eligible to enroll in available courses for which they meet the prerequisites. Early Studies students pay the same tuition and fees as other UNLV non-degree seeking students.

Education Student Practica and Internships
School districts across the region collaborate with the College of Education to provide practicum and internship experiences for education majors. Each semester, 90 to 130 students are in K-12 schools participating in a 16-week internship. In addition, schools provide approximately 600 placements for students involved in shorter practicum experiences.
Electronic Records System
The Electronic Records System (ERS) preserves data on employee health and radiation exposure dating from the dawn of the nuclear age. The records include data related to occupational medicine, industrial hygiene, and radiation exposure and were collected by officials in the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), and contractor personnel,
The records are used for official governmental purposes to evaluate employee benefits, health screening and tracking, and legal adjudication. Use of ERS e-records is maintained within a cyber-secure environment, with documents accessible only by officials with appropriate clearance.
The DOE and NNSA has sponsored the program, with nearly $30 million being invested in the system’s development under a UNLV research team.
