New Honors Student Orientation Overview

This program will help you make a successful transition to UNLV! Attending orientation is mandatory for all first-year students. All first-year students must also complete the Online Pre-Orientation course in WebCampus before attending their scheduled orientation.

At orientation, you'll join a special welcome session with fellow classmates who are in the Honors College, learn more about academic advising for your major, receive your class schedule, and understand about how to prepare for your first semester as a Rebel.

Academic Advising

Establishing a relationship with an academic advisor ensures that you meet degree requirements and accomplish your personal and educational goals. First-year students will receive their class schedules during orientation and learn valuable information about degree requirements. Guests are not permitted to attend advising and class registration sessions with their students.

Your academic advisor will enroll you in the appropriate courses based on your major and official placement information submitted to the Office of Admissions. If you do not have official placement scores or wish to improve your placement, review the UNLV Placement Assessment options. Official placement information must be submitted to the Office of Admissions prior to your scheduled orientation.

Family and Guests

Family members and guests are invited to attend UNLV Family Orientation. This unique program will address the priorities and questions that family members typically have.
