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.
