Welcome to academic advising. UNLV currently has 12 academic advising centers on campus each with their own unique approach to working with their majors, as well as off-campus advising available at the College of Southern Nevada and Nellis Air Force Base. The executive director of academic advising at UNLV is responsible for the institutional objectives and general leadership of the academic advising centers on campus, as well as the promotion of the value and progress of academic advising at UNLV.
As a UNLV student, academic advising is required for all new students. Incoming freshmen will meet with their First-Year Advisor at New Student Orientation and incoming transfer students are required to schedule an individual advising appointment with their academic advising center. Establishing a relationship with an academic advisor ensures that you are meeting your specific degree requirements and accomplishing your personal academic goals. Have a look around and find answers to your questions. And remember, when in doubt, ask your academic advisor!
