At the University of Nevada, Reno we offer a fully online application portal that allows you to complete and submit your application in minutes. If you are ready to submit an application, follow these steps below to get started.
Step One: Create an application account
Here, you will use our application portal to create your application account. After entering your first and last name, email address and birthdate, you will receive an automatic email with a temporary registration PIN. After receiving your PIN, you'll complete the registration process that allows you to access your online application for admission.
Step Two: Complete your online application for admission
Next, you'll be guided through your online application specific to your student type, including the following:
- New first-year students
- Transfer students
- International undergraduate students
- Nondegree students
- 2nd bachelor's degree students
- Certificate students
- Graduate special students
*Returning students must complete a returning student application for readmission to the University.
Step Three: Pay your application fee
You must pay a $60 non-refundable application fee ($95 for international student applicants) as you complete your online application. The application fee is only valid during the semester in which you apply and cannot be deferred or transferred to another semester.
Step Four: Submit your online application
After you've completed the various parts of the application (e.g., biographical information, high school education, declaration of major, etc.) and paid your application fee, you can finalize, certify and submit your application for admission.
Step Five: Create a MyNEVADA account
After applying, you need to create a MyNEVADA account. This account provides access to your student application dashboard, allows you to check your application status and accept or deny admission (if offered), review your fees, make payments and more. More information on creating a MyNEVADA account.
