Freshmen from Hawaii

Incoming freshmen for the fall semester from Hawaii are invited to attend a special orientation session in Honolulu. If you are unable to attend this orientation session in Hawaii, you are welcome to attend any of the New Student Orientation sessions taking place in Las Vegas. To register, log in to MyUNLV.

Orientation is a one-day program that provides information and academic preparedness for you as you start your transition into the UNLV community. The program is mandatory for all incoming UNLV students.

Due to the increased number of admitted students from Hawaii, we will be offering two identical orientation programs on June 10, 2016 and June 11, 2016. Students will select to attend on either June 10, 2016 or June 11, 2016.

Advising and Registration

Students beginning in the fall semester will meet with academic advisors from their college who will assist students in registration. You will register for classes and learn how to navigate through the MyUNLV registration system. Parents are not permitted to attend advising and class registration sessions with their students.

Rebel Family and Guests

Family and guests are invited to attend New Student Orientation in Hawaii and have a separate program designed for them for a portion of the day. By holding separate sessions, the staff is better able to address the unique priorities and questions that students and parents typically have. There is a mandatory $25 fee for each family member or guest to attend Hawaii Orientation. Please visit the Family and Guest page for more information.
