Student Requests for Remote Learning for Fall 2021
Most classes for fall 2021 semester are planned for in-person instruction. In preparation for a safe transition back, UNLV has implemented mitigation strategies to reduce the spread of COVID-19 on our campuses.
The Nevada System of Higher Education plans to require COVID-19 vaccinations for students once the vaccine receives full approval by the Food and Drug Administration. We urge students to do their part to ensure a safe return to campus and prepare for this potential requirement by getting vaccinated at the Student Health Center, a Southern Nevada Health District site, or other locations in their communities.
Some students may need or prefer to continue with remote learning, but find that the classes in which they intended to enroll are being offered in-person only. We will work with these students, their advisors, and their instructors on an individual basis to determine whether a remote/online schedule is appropriate and achievable.
It may take up to six weeks to review and consider specific requests. Students who wish to continue remote learning for fall 2021 can begin the steps outlined below. We recommend starting the process no later than July 15, 2021.
If you are a student with a documented disability that specifically impacts your ability to be in public places, such as the UNLV campus, you may qualify for accommodations from the Disability Resource Center (DRC).
- If you are registered with the DRC, please contact your assigned disability specialist by email to make an appointment to discuss your options.
- If you are not registered with the DRC, please complete an application. Once you have completed the application, a member of their staff will contact you to obtain medical documentation.
If you are a student that does not have a documented disability:
- Search MyUNLV for remote or web-based sections of your desired fall 2021 classes and enroll in those if they are available.
- If you are unable to find or enroll in remote or web-based sections, please make an appointment with your academic advisor (undergraduate students) or graduate coordinator (graduate students) to discuss your options.
- If, after meeting with your advisor or graduate coordinator, you are unable to create a remote/online schedule that meets your needs, please complete the Remote Learning Inquiry Form. Staff in the Provost's Office will assess your request and collaborate with your academic program, dean of your college or school and, if applicable, the Graduate College, to determine whether an alternative exists.
Please keep in mind that submitting an inquiry form does not guarantee that the university will be able to offer remote learning for all requested classes, or that remote classes will be made available at your preferred times.
