The Rebel Scholars Program encourages non-traditional/adult learners to enhance the undergraduate educational experience by participating in learning and involvement opportunities outside of the classroom.
Completion of the Rebel Scholars Program program recognizes participating students for these extra-curricular activities by awarding specialized cords for graduation. Additionally, students will be able to add the experience to their résumés, discuss their out-of-classroom experiences during potential job interviews, and feel a greater sense of belonging in the UNLV community.
The Adult Learner Advisory Board, in collaboration with career counseling experts, will offer presentations each semester, highlighting ways that participants can use the skills and experience gained through the Rebel Scholars Program to qualitatively enhance their résumés, interview skills, and academic interactions.
Students must complete at least 8 benchmark tasks between the time of confirmed enrollment in the Rebel Scholars Program and the date of graduation. Participants must show proof in order to validate completion of a task. Participation in this program is free. A Certificate of Completion and a cord for graduation will be awarded upon completion.
