If you have already successfully completed a satisfactory three semester-credit U.S. Constitutions course from a regionally accredited institution, you must successfully complete a satisfactory Nevada Constitutions course. For Constitutions courses offered prior to 2000, please refer to the appropriate catalog course descriptions to determine which ones satisfied the Constitutions requirement.
Lower-division general education courses successfully completed at a regionally accredited U.S. institution that may possibly count towards UNLV general education requirements will be evaluated for transfer credit no matter in what year the courses were completed.
Upper-division courses and/or courses designed for the major may not be applicable for transfer if they are over 10 years old, depending on the field of study as determined by the UNLV College, School or Department offering coursework in that field.
If your incoming transfer credits do not match the UNLV semester credits required, UNLV will evaluate whether your transfer courses match the equivalent UNLV General Education course and compare the transfer credits earned to the number of credits required by UNLV. Then, the following determinations will be made:
- If 66% or more of required credits for a particular UNLV requirement have been earned in the transfer course, then the requirement has been met.
- If less than 66% of required credits have been earned in the transfer course, then the student must successfully complete additional course(s) to make up the credit shortage within that general education requirement. Students must still satisfy the minimum general education credits in every category to graduate.
