Admitted Transfer Checklist

Follow these steps if you’re been admitted as a transfer student.

What to Do Immediately

  • Rebelmail is your student email account and the university’s official means of communicating with you. Activate your account as soon as possible so you don’t miss out on important information about deadlines, major campus events, and announcements.

  • Monitor your To Do List and Communication Center in MyUNLV regularly throughout your enrollment process as well as throughout your studies at UNLV to receive important notifications. MyUNLV allows you to manage everything including registering for classes, checking your grades, and paying your tuition and fees.

  • If you are still enrolled in classes, be sure to submit your official final transcripts to the Office of Admissions. Admission is conditional until your official final transcripts are received. We recommend submitting these as soon as possible, once grades are posted or scores are available.

  • Information about the courses you have transferred to UNLV will appear in your Transfer Credit Report. Coursework will only be officially evaluated after your official transcripts from each institution attended have been received by the Office of Admissions. View your report by logging in to MyUNLV and navigating to the Student Center dashboard. The report is in the drop-down menu of the Academics section.

  • Transfer students must meet with an academic advisor in the area of their major in order to register for classes.

  • We encourage all students to apply for financial aid and scholarships by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible. When you complete your FAFSA you are also automatically considered for institutional scholarships. You may also check with your academic college for additional scholarship opportunities.
    The FAFSA is available Oct. 1. Priority consideration for merit-based scholarships is based upon completing the FAFSA by Feb. 1 and being admitted by Jan. 1. You may complete your FAFSA after Feb. 1; however, funding may be limited.

  • Nevada high school graduates are automatically considered in-state residents for tuition purposes. If you did not graduate from a Nevada high school and believe you qualify for in-state residency, review the residency application as soon as possible to determine your eligibility and apply with required documentation.

  • New Student Orientation is a highly-recommended, one-day program to help you make a successful transition to UNLV. You will learn about the many resources available to you, meet students in your major, and learn about campus life. Orientation registration details will be emailed to your Rebelmail account.

What to Do Before You Arrive on Campus

  • Make the most of your college experience by living on campus. Learn more about your housing and dining choices. The priority deadline for residence hall applications is June 1.

  • View your account balance, pay your tuition and fees, learn about deadlines, or sign up for a monthly payment plan on MyUNLV. Be sure to pay your tuition and fees before the start of the semester to avoid late fees.

  • All enrolled students who attend classes on campus must provide documentation of immunizations. We recommend you submit these as soon as possible to prevent possible registration holds on your account. Find out what’s required and where to submit your proof of immunizations.

  • Opportunities abound for getting involved in university life. Connect with peers who share your passions in one of our 350+ student organizations. Whatever your interest, there is an organization to match.

  • Kick off your academic year with a series of exciting events during the first few weeks of school. Get ready to meet other new students, develop friendships, and have some fun!
