The Division of Health Sciences Advising Center provides academic guidance to all undergraduate students within the School of Integrated Health Sciences, the School of Public Health, and the School of Nursing.


Welcome to the Division of Health Sciences Advising Center. Admitted undergraduate students should schedule meetings with their advisors once or twice each semester to review needed classes, discuss schedules, and evaluate plans for timely graduations.

Before Meeting With an Advisor

Before meeting with an advisor, a new student must complete the following steps:

  1. Activate your Rebelmail email account.
  2. Activate your MyUNLV account.
  3. Register for New Student Orientation (NSO). Go the “Student Center” in your MyUNLV account and click on the "Register for Orientation" link.
    Freshmen are required to attend NSO before meeting with an academic advisor. Email if you have any questions.
    Transfer students may waive NSO, but must schedule an appointment with an advisor before registering for their first semesters at UNLV.
  4. Submit official ACT/SAT for MATH/ENG placement and/or AP scores to UNLV Admissions Office.
