In order to be admitted into the College of Liberal Arts, students must meet the following requirements: Entering freshmen, transfer students from within UNLV or transfer students from other institutions must have a minimum 2.5 GPA. Students must also satisfy the department GPA requirements before being admitted to the major. Individual departments may have higher GPA cumulative requirements. Check the catalog GPA requirements. Students who have a GPA sufficient for admission to the college, but not for their particular major will be admitted as a pre-major. University policy states that a candidate for a bachelor's degree must complete the last 30 semester credits in uninterrupted residence as a major in the college from which the degree is expected.
