Who is considered a returning student? What are the requirements for admission?
A returning student is anyone who has attended UNLV in the past as a degree-seeking student and has had a break in enrollment longer than two consecutive semesters (fall and spring semesters only; summer term is not applicable). A returning student is also any student who has completed or who will complete a UNLV bachelor’s degree prior to the term of application.
Any student who left UNLV on university suspension and exceeded one full year away from UNLV must reapply as a returning student.
If you were placed on university suspension and plan to re-enroll after one year or if you would like to re-enroll before your university suspension is complete, you must contact your advising center.
Returning international students must also contact OISS (Office of International Students and Scholars) to determine if a new I-20 is required.
If you are unsure of your status, please contact UNLV Admissions.
Returning students who complete all required steps will be admitted to UNLV.
