Planning for a return to on-campus operations

We are very excited to begin a carefully measured and well-planned return to on-campus operations. As a residential campus we thrive on the energy of our students, faculty and staff. The people of this Division have worked imaginatively and tirelessly to provide high quality remote services to you, our students.

As we begin our safe return to campus please use our hybrid model of in-person and virtual outreach, programs and services — whatever makes you comfortable. You will see how to access our student success services as well as the stringent safety protocols all of us will be following to minimize risk and promote a work place of wellness.

The University will return to on-campus classes for the second part of summer session, which begins July 10. Our plan for increased services on campus is currently under review and will be posted to the University website once approved. By the start of the Fall 2020 semester, on August 24, 2020, you will also find our more detailed “opening of school” plan.

Campus update for students

Given the unpredictability of the pandemic, we want you to know that your University has developed a spectrum of plans to provide opportunities for student learning and to meet your co-curricular needs regardless of the conditions. Our goal is to maximize your opportunities for safe and responsible in-person education while also providing online options for those who need or prefer it.

After careful consideration, the University has made the difficult decision to cancel the NevadaFIT program, which was scheduled to run August 16-21, 2020.

The NevadaFIT website provides more information and answers to questions students may have.
