Viewing Your Residency Status

Per Board of Regents requirements, all new applicants must submit documentation to prove Nevada resident status for tuition purposes.  Most new applicants meet this requirement when they submit their Nevada high school transcript. However, if you did not attend high school in Nevada, other documentation is required.  If we have not received appropriate documentation at the time of admission, your residency is defaulted to out-of-state. New applicants have until the Friday before classes start to submit documentation to the Office of Admissions and Records.

To view your current residency status, navigate to MyNEVADA 2.0, and either search for Applicant Center from the upper right hand corner search bar:
