Advising Center

To help you plan and achieve your goals.

The Advising Center provides guidance for all undergraduate students in the School of Nursing, the School of Public Health and the School of Integrated Health Sciences.

Undergraduate students are encouraged to see an advisor for all general education requirements.

Academic advisors are available every day by appointment and are excited to meet with you to help you plan and achieve your goals. Advisors are well informed about the institution’s resources for students and will provide appropriate referrals. Advisors assist you in the development of meaningful educational plans that are compatible with your personal and/or career goals.

During advising sessions you will learn to:

  • Read and interpret degree worksheets.
  • Review academic requirement reports via MyUNLV.
  • Enroll in appropriate general education and degree course requirements.
  • Make informed decisions concerning your degree, major and career goals.
  • Understand and initiate discussions regarding relevant university policies and procedures.
  • Use campus resources appropriate to your needs.
  • Exhibit informed decision making and take responsibility for your academic success.
  • Graduate in a timely manner based on your individual education plan.


Advising services for applicants are not provided. However if you need clarification about the application process you may contact the appropriate graduate coordinator.


Graduate coordinators are the primary point of contact for graduate education and graduate students in the academic departments. Graduate coordinators provide oversight of admissions, matriculation, and graduation requirements for graduate students in their departments.

School of Public Health Contacts:


Students at the graduate level are advised by faculty members who provide assistance in developing an academic course plan and completion of the capstone. In their first semester, students should identify a faculty member who will serve as the Chair of their Graduate Committee and their primary academic advisor.

For additional information about graduate programs and graduate students roles and responsibilities, please contact Graduate College Student Advising Services.
