If you would like to enroll in undergraduate courses at UNLV without being officially accepted into a degree-granting program, you may apply to UNLV as a non-degree-seeking student. The non-degree application fee is $30.
This category may apply to:
Students who do not meet the general admission requirements but would like to earn UNLV credits.
Students who missed the application deadline but still wish to enroll in classes.
Visiting students who want to enroll in UNLV courses and transfer the credits to their home institution.
Students seeking personal or professional fulfillment.
Students who would like to take English language classes.
Current high school students who participate in the Dual Enrollment Program and would like to earn UNLV credit while still in high school.
Non-degree-seeking students are not eligible for federal financial aid or state aid.
Non-degree seeking students are limited to a maximum of eight credits per semester with the exception of those students enrolled in UNLV-affiliated study abroad programs, in which case the maximum is 18 credits per semester. Individual exceptions to this policy may be made on a case-by-case basis by petition to the dean of the Academic Success Center.
UNLV does not request or evaluate transcripts for non-degree-seeking students. Non-degree-seeking students wishing to enroll in classes that have prerequisites must get special permission from the department offering the class.
Students who have previously attended UNLV must be in good academic standing with UNLV in order to attend as a non-degree-seeking student.
