New Freshman

Start Your Career Off Right!

Accept your Admission:

Once you have decided to attend the University of Nevada, Reno log into MyNEVADA and accept your admission.

Advanced Registration:

All new freshmen at the university are required to pay an advanced registration fee of $250.00 and are placed into their first semester classes. This applies toward the total fee bill for fall.

Students participating in Advanced Registration will have the opportunity to meet with an advisor during summer orientation and will be able to adjust their schedules at that time.

Prior to registration, students MUST have submitted:

  • Required immunizations: two doses for measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) and an immunization within the last 10 years for tetanus/diphtheria (TD)
  • It is also highly RECOMMENDED that prior to registration you ensure that we have received your ACT or SAT test scores. Test scores are used to determine the correct placement into English and math classes.
