Getting started with admissions
Come join Alphie, Wolfie Jr. and Luna at the University of Nevada, Reno! Whether you are a first-time student from out of state, an international student from Brazil or a student transferring from a community college in Nevada, we're excited you want to call Reno-Tahoe home. Learn about the admissions process below.
Preparing to apply to the University
November 15 is our Early Action Admission deadline, but we don't rush into relationships. That's a non-binding decision. You still have until April 7 to submit an application for freshman enrollment in the fall semester. But don't procrastinate. Use our resources below to find out about our admission requirements and application deadlines, the materials you need to prepare to apply and class placement information for standardized testing.
Applying to the University
Applying to college is challenging at best, stressful at worst. Let us help you bring down the tension levels with a step-by-step guide of how to apply. It's a two-step process. First, you create an applicant account username and password. Then, you use that log-in information to complete an online application. That's it. Let's go. We're waiting. Submit your application today.
What to do after you apply?
Whew. You applied. The wait begins. As you wait for a decision, the next step is to create a MyNEVADA 2.0 account so you can check your admission status, accept your admission, register for classes and more. Use our admission checklist to learn about the steps to take after you've applied and set-up a MyNEVADA 2.0 account.
We’d love to answer any questions you have about our application process, financial assistance or life at the University of Nevada, Reno.
