Things to Know Prior to Registration
Advising: It is recommended that you meet with your academic advisor prior to registering for classes to confirm the courses you would like to take will apply towards your degree. Advising Center information is avalable at (unlv.edu/advising/centers)
Outstanding Items: View your MyUNLV Student Center for outstanding items. Important outstanding items that will prevent you from registering for classes will be listed under Communication Center, Holds, and To Do List.
Fees: Estimate the cost of your fees. Visit our Fee Estimator to see the breakdown of fees and tuition. Check the course listings in MyUNLV to determine if special fees are associated with the course(s) for which you wish to register.
Student responsibility when registering for classes: Students are academically and financially responsible for the classes in which they register. Students who are unable to attend should drop the course by the drop deadline date to remove their obligation to pay. Students who register and do not pay will be purged (administratively dropped) with a 50% penalty. Students should be aware of their schedule and financial situation prior to registering to avoid any late penalties. Please review the Summer Term drop policies before registering.
View Schedule: Course dates, times, instructors, special course fees; and add, drop, and payment deadlines are listed under the course information.
Summer Term policies are different from Fall and Spring at UNLV. It is the responsibility of the student to be aware of the add/drop dates and payment deadlines to avoid late fee penalties.

Full Class Sections
Students must obtain permission from the department the class section falls under. Once a department has granted a student permission to add a course, then the student may add the course through the Student Center in MyUNLV (my.unlv.nevada.edu). Students are not allowed to attend a class that they are not registered in without authorization.
