Attendance Policy

All first-year fall semester students are required to attend New Student Orientation. Transfer Students are not required to attend orientation, however it is strongly encouraged. This program has been carefully planned with your transition to UNLV in mind and is designed to set you up for a successful first semester.

It is necessary that new students arrive on time and must remain in attendance for the entire full-day orientation session. Do not plan to leave New Student Orientation early for work commitments, travel arrangements, or appointments that conflict with your orientation session.

If extenuating circumstances prevent you from attending New Student Orientation, please notify us as soon as possible at 702-774-UNLV(8658) or orientation@unlv.edu.
