Undergraduate Students

Summer enrollment is open to Degree and Non-Degree seeking students. Refer to the Admissions website to learn how to apply to UNLV.

All degree seeking freshmen students should meet with academic advisors from the departments in which they plan to major. See a complete list of academic advisors at Students who have not declared majors should contact the Academic Success Center, (702) 895-3177, to make appointments to see an academic advisor.

Non-degree seeking students are not eligible for financial aid, scholarships, Veterans Administration benefits, or academic advisement.

Students who want to use Summer Term credits in their degree programs at other institutions are advised to consult catalogs and faculty advisors at the university from which they intend to receive their degrees.

Graduate Students

The deadline for admission to graduate programs varies with each program. Contact the department of interest for additional information.

Non-degree seeking post-baccalaureate students may complete the Non-Degree Seeking Graduate Student form online. Non-degree seeking graduate students may enroll in 600- or 700- level courses with the consent of the instructor. No guarantee can be given that such work may be subsequently included in advanced degree programs here at UNLV or elsewhere.

Graduate students may take no more than twelve credits for the entire Summer Term. Graduate courses with a 700E designation may not be used in a UNLV graduate degree program. Additionally, courses which are graded on a satisfactory/fail basis may not be used in a graduate degree program except for thesis, dissertation, or professional paper.

Address questions about graduate status, admission, or transfer credits to the Graduate College, University Gateway Building (GTW). Call (702) 895-3320 or visit the Graduate College website.

All high school juniors and seniors with a cumulative grade point average required by UNLV at the time of admission are eligible for participation in the UNLV Dual Enrollment Program. Initiate requests with a high school counselor or the Academic Success Center at (702) 895-3177 or email
