Freshman Arriving in Fall

As an incoming freshman, you are required to attend New Student Orientation (NSO) before you can register for classes. NSO is mandatory for all Freshmen. When you attend NSO, you will have your first meeting with the Hotel College academic advisors.

At NSO you will:

  • Learn about College Life;
  • Get to know your Graduation Requirements;
  • Receive Academic Advising;
  • Register for Classes; and,
  • Explore the UNLV Campus.

Before you attend NSO

  • Prepare yourself for NSO and your first semester by reviewing the following:
  • Things to bring to NSO
    To make the most of your NSO experience, you will need to bring the following with you:
    • Your NSHE student ID number and password – This was sent to your RebelMail account (link to RebelMail) once your admissions became official. You will need this information to get into your MyUNLV account to register for classes.
    • A copy of your SAT/ACT test scores – So you will know which English and Math class to register for.
  • Review your Program Worksheet
    If you have already completed college level courses (example: A.P. credit or concurrent enrollment in high school and college), you need to submit an official transcript to the Admissions Office, if you haven’t already. We will evaluate those courses and place them on your official degree worksheet and send it to you separately, along with a copy of our transfer policy.

    In the meantime, we recommend that you review your program worksheet to see what classes you
    will need to take in order to graduate. Hint: Once you click on your major, be sure to select the
    most recent catalog year to be sure you are looking at the correct worksheet.
