Newly admitted freshmen and transfer students are required to meet with an academic advisor before enrolling in classes. Freshmen are advised and register for classes during summer orientation. New transfer students should call the Advising Center at 702-895-2077 to make an appointment to review transfer equivalencies. Freshmen are required to obtain advising in the first semester; second semester advising is optional but recommended. Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors are encouraged to meet with an academic advisor in the College of Sciences Advising Center at least once per year to ensure you are track to meet your degree requirements.
Before you take a class for graduate credit, you must be admitted to one of the graduate student classifications: graduate standing or graduate provisional. As a graduate student, you should confer with your advisor for approved graduate programs. Only those courses that are numbered 600 and 700 will be accepted for graduate credit. Dental and law students must see their respective professional schools. For more information, please visit the Graduate College.
If you have never attended UNLV and would like to take a class for personal enrichment and are not looking for admission into a degree program, you must complete a Non-Degree-Seeking Student Information Form.
