We're continuing to monitor conditions and follow COVID-19 guidelines to ensure the health and well-being of our students. With that in mind, we are hosting orientation virtually while we prepare for a primarily in-person spring semester. UNLV is strongly encouraging all students to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
Immunization Requirement Reminder
Students must meet immunization requirements, including the COVID-19 vaccine to register for the spring 2022 semester. If you have not done so already, we recommend turning in your records as soon as possible to be ready for spring registration.
Virtual New Student Orientation will help you make a successful transition to college. You'll connect with future classmates, learn about the services available to help you succeed, and explore opportunities to get involved. We look forward to supporting you along the way to ensure you are ready for your first semester at UNLV.

This virtual program will help you make a successful transition to UNLV. Attending orientation is strongly encouraged for all transfer students. You are expected to complete Online Pre-Orientation before attending your scheduled orientation; however, we will allow time during your scheduled session for you to complete it.

Academic Advising - Fall Semester
Establishing a relationship with an academic advisor ensures that you meet degree requirements and accomplish your personal and educational goals.
Transfer students are required to make an advising appointment and meet with an academic advisor in order to register for classes. Advising and class registration is not offered during transfer orientation. Contact your Advising Center to schedule an appointment
