Accepting Admissions

Undergraduate degree seeking applicants who have been evaluated for admission and are admissible, will receive an admit letter and packet informing them of their acceptance. 

Once this admit letter is received, the applicant will need to log into their MyNEVADA account. As long as they have activated their MyNEVADA account, they can accept/decline their admission. Accepting admission is a non-binding decision that allows the applicant to move forward in all new student processes, such as Advanced Registration.  

To accept/decline admission, after logging into MyNEVADA, click on 'Applicant Center Dashboard'. At the bottom of the page students will see their submitted admission application and a link that states 'Accept or Decline'. Click on the 'Accept or Decline' link to proceed.

Accepting admission is a non-binding decision which allows the applicant to move forward in new student processes such as Advanced Registration, signing up for Orientation, etc. Should a student's decision change at any time prior to the semester beginning, they may request to have their admission canceled. The non-binding $250 Advanced Registration deposit will be fully refunded. 

If admission is declined, all applications will be canceled, such as a housing application. Students should be certain that they will not attend as this action may not be reversed. 

Applicants will now see the term and program for the admission application submitted. To continue, click 'Accept or Decline'. To return, click 'Cancel'.


To accept, click [I Accept Admission] or to decline, click [I Decline Admission]. You will be prompted to confirm on the next page.


Confirm your admission acceptance by clicking [Confirm Acceptance].
