Attendance Policy

Incoming Freshman Students

All incoming first-year students are required to complete Online Pre-Orientation and New Student Orientation. Students are expected to complete Online Pre-Orientation prior to their scheduled virtual orientation session. Freshman students must access the virtual orientation session on time and participate in the entire program. During the virtual orientation session, students will attend a live welcome program and then must complete the New Student Orientation course. The New Student Orientation course will become available in WebCampus while students are attending the live welcome program on their scheduled orientation date.

If an extenuating circumstance prevents you from completing orientation virtually, you can request an orientation exemption. Request an orientation exemption during orientation registration, which is located in the to-do list of your MyUNLV account. Orientation staff will review these requests on a rolling basis and notify you if your request has been approved or denied.

Please note that all new degree-seeking students will be charged a one-time, non-refundable orientation fee whether or not the student attends orientation.

Incoming Transfer, Military & Veteran, and International Students

All students are required to complete Online Pre-Orientation. You're not required to attend an orientation session, however, it is strongly encouraged. Orientation programs will help you make a successful transition to UNLV.

You're required to make an advising appointment and meet with an academic advisor in order to register for classes. Contact your Advising Center to schedule an appointment.

Military & Veteran and International students are also required to complete either the Military & Veteran Transition Orientation course or the New International Student Guide in WebCampus prior to their scheduled virtual orientation session.

Please note that all new degree-seeking students will be charged a one-time, non-refundable orientation fee whether or not the student attends orientation.
