Admission to UNLV
Students who have completed an Associate of Arts (AA), Associate of Business (AB), or Associate of Science (AS) from an NSHE two-year institution are guaranteed admission to UNLV and are given credit for meeting UNLV’s general education core lower-division curriculum requirements.
If you have earned an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) or Associate of General Studies (AGS) or if you have not completed an associate degree, you must meet the general transfer requirements.
When you request your official transcript from your NSHE institution, the “NSHE to NSHE transfer” method is recommended. Your transcript will be sent electronically from your institution to UNLV, making the process quicker for you!
Residency for tuition purposes: Only students who have graduated from high school in Nevada will automatically be considered “in-state” based on the application for admission; all other students who would qualify for in-state residency must submit a residency application. You may qualify for in-state status at UNLV if you have been in-state at another NSHE institution, but this status will not “follow you” automatically.
