Student of Concern Referral

Faculty and staff can play an invaluable role in helping students who are in distress. Your expression of interest, concern, and compassion is an important factor toward a student seeking the assistance they need. The Student of Concern Referral is a part of a comprehensive reporting system that is an important element in fostering a safe and supportive campus community. It allows faculty and staff at UNLV to share appropriate information about students for which you are concerned. The Student of Concern Referral and related information can be found online.

Voluntary Health Withdrawal

UNLV students may apply for a Voluntary Health Withdrawal (a separation of the student from the university) if they experience medical or psychological conditions that significantly impair their ability to function successfully and safely in their role as a student.
