International student enrollment checklist

International students may enroll in classes before they arrive and report to the University. Class registration and tuition payment can be completed on MyNEVADA. To register for classes on MyNEVADA, all the holds on your MyNEVADA account must be removed.

The holds to be removed include the following:

  • Admissions. Hold on enrollment from the Office of International Students and Scholars
  • Enrollment. Hold for immunization documentation
  • Advising. Hold for advising documentation (only for undergraduate students)

Check your MyNEVADA account to ensure all holds have been lifted.

  • Activate your NetID

    To access your MyNEVADA account you will need to create a user profile using your NSHE ID and your application number, found on your letter of admission. If you have problems accessing your account you may call the Computing Helpdesk at (775) 682-5000 for assistance.
