  2. Students must stay within the curriculum specified by the planned degree program articulation worksheet. Please note that if a student plans to use course work from an institution outside of the NSHE system, the UNLV Transfer Center must verify that the course(s) will be appropriately articulated to satisfy a particular requirement found on the planned degree program Articulation Worksheet.
  3. At the time of transfer, students must have earned the minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) as required by the UNLV major indicated on this agreement.
