Advising

Master’s Students

New master's students are assigned to an interim advisor for initial advising upon acceptance. Following initial advising, students should identify a program advisor from among the higher education faculty before earning 12 hours toward their degree. Once this person is identified, he/she becomes the student's primary advisor. The functions of the program advisor are to review the proposed program of the student, guide the student through the process of course selection, serve as capstone project advisor, and provide counsel on post-graduation career opportunities.

NOTE: Students can take up to 9 credits as a non-degree seeking student at UNLV, which with the initial program advisor's consent can be applied to the student's master's program of study, once admitted into the program.

No more than 12 credits can be transferred into the program from another institution and these credits cannot have satisfied the requirements of another degree
