Upper Division Courses

Generally, upper division course may be completed in four regular semesters (with a full time course load). Once you have been admitted into the upper division level and selected a major it is critical to plan your upper division business courses by reviewing the prerequisites for each course.

It is strongly suggested that you attend a 30 minute advising appointment to review your graduation plan prior to your final semester.

Transfer Course Evaluation

You may check the Transfer Equivalence Table to determine if a course has been transferred to UNLV and if that course is degree-applicable. If you do not see a specific course listed, you may be asked by your advisor to submit course syllabi or course descriptions for review.

When submitting course syllabi (preferred) or course descriptions:

  • The course number, title, credits, semester completed must match the information on your transcript
  • Include a school identifier (college name, URL, copy of catalog cover)
  • Write your name and student L# or SS# on each syllabi and course description.
  • Identify the courses you believe to be the UNLV equivalent
  • You may call the Undergraduate Advising Office 7 to 10 business days after you submit the paperwork to check the status of the decision
