    Freshman Start

    Freshman start is for students whose ACT/SAT scores place them into remedial ENG 98, MATH 95, or MATH 96. These courses need to be successfully completed before moving on to the college-level courses required for all degrees at the university. Freshman Start allows incoming freshman to take these classes during the Summer Session and stay on track for graduation.

    Summer Orientation

    Academic Advisement for all incoming freshman is done at summer orientation. All incoming freshman will have an academic hold on their MyNEVADA accounts until they attend summer orientation. At summer orientation, the student will meet with their advisor to review class schedules, core curriculum, degree requirements, and make changes to schedules if necessary. Information for orientation registration will appear in your MyNevada "To-Do List".
