Counselors and College Advisors

UNLV appreciates the vital role high school counselors and college advisors play in helping students consider their continuing education options.

Menu of Service

In an effort to be available to you and your students, the Office of Admissions has established a broad array of virtual information sessions. Sessions include general admissions and financial aid information, academic college overviews, student resources, and more!

Facts and Stats

Since our first classes were held on campus in 1957, UNLV has transformed itself from a small branch college into a thriving urban research institution. Along the way, our urban university has become an indispensable resource in one of the country's fastest-growing and most enterprising cities.

Coronavirus Updates

Campus Visits and Events

To help limit coronavirus (COVID-19) risk to our future students and families, UNLV is taking precautions by suspending campus tours and events through Jan, 4, 2021. We’re available to virtually meet with you regularly.

Admission Requirements for Freshman

While UNLV is already test-optional, for those students who are not admissible based on their GPA and have not been able to test (or re-test) due to the limited availability of tests, we’re allowing these students to appeal their admission decision. Learn more about freshman admission requirements.

Merit-Based Scholarships 

UNLV is currently re-evaluating our merit-based scholarship awarding process for the fall 2021 semester. As we update this process, please note that our priority deadline remains Nov. 1, 2020. Be sure to have students complete the FAFSA or Alternate Need Form, and be admitted to UNLV by this date for priority consideration.

We look forward to sharing our revised merit-based scholarship awarding process with you soon.
