UNLV Dual Enrollment Program

The UNLV Dual Enrollment Program provides highly motivated Nevada high school students an opportunity to get a head start on their college education.

  • Earn dual credit (university and high school credit)
  • Attend classes with UNLV undergraduate students
  • Receive full access to free Academic Success Center (ASC) support resources such as advising, tutoring, and success coaching

Please note that some departments at UNLV have independent arrangements with local high schools, which operate separately from the centralized UNLV Dual Enrollment Program provided by the ASC.

Students are eligible to enroll in any class at UNLV, where they meet the prerequisites.

  • Enroll in Fall, Spring, or Summer classes

  • Math, English, Foreign Language, and some Science courses will require UNLV placement testing

Enroll

Interested high school students of all levels (freshman through senior) are eligible for the program. There is no high school GPA requirement, but we strongly recommend the program for students with a 3.0 GPA or higher. 

  1. Verify the costs for a 3-credit course using the undergraduate tuition rates on the Tuition Estimator.
  2. Apply as a non-degree-seeking student (UNLV Dual Enrollment Program). There is a $30 application fee. You should apply at least two weeks before the start of the semester/session for which you wish to enroll. When approved, you will receive an NSHE student ID number via email.
  3. Have a parent or guardian complete the Dual Enrollment Participation Form.
  4. Contact Michael Hack, Dual Enrollment advisor, at 702-895-0442 or dualenrollment@unlv.edu to schedule an academic advising appointment. All high school students are required to meet with an advisor to discuss course planning, enrollment procedures, and program resources.
  5. Enroll in UNLV classes.

*Please note that all students MUST be recognized by the state of Nevada as being current high school students (Freshmen through Senior) to participate.

Partnerships

The ASC partners with numerous units across campus. One area of partnership that is particularly important to high-achieving high school students is the UNLV Honors College. We encourage all of our dual enrollment students who are high school seniors to apply to the UNLV Honors College.
