Get answers to your questions about your transition from Sierra Nevada University to the University of Nevada, Reno.

July 1, 2022 marked an important milestone in our university’s proud 148-year history. The stunning location and the 50-plus year legacy of SNU will be preserved as the University of Nevada, Reno at Lake Tahoe.

This year-long transition has been one of our University’s most complex and game-changing accomplishments, and we will continue to work with regulators in the coming months to provide final documentation of this transaction.
