OISS Online Check-In

In order to enroll in classes before your arrival to the University, your I-20 or DS-2019 from the University should be issued; you do not have to have received the I-20 or DS-2019 yet. For U.S. transfer students, your SEVIS release date to the University must be set.

To apply for the OISS Online Check-In, you need to complete the following:

The OISS is currently working on a new system for the online check-in quizzes. Once the quizzes are published, you will be notified regarding the process.

In the OISS Online Check-In, you will find 2 sections you need to complete: "Pre-Arrival" and "Check-In." Each section has lessons and quizzes. You are required to complete all the lessons and pass the 2 quizzes with a minimum passing score of 80/100 (80%) to be eligible to enroll in classes before your arrival at the University. You have 3 attempts to pass each quiz. Please email our office, oiss@unr.edu, once you complete the quizzes whether you passed or did not pass.

If you do not pass the 2 quizzes within 3 attempts, you will be required to attend a Check-In Meeting at OISS after you arrive at the University. Please note that you will not be able to register for classes before you attend the Check-In Meeting. Check-In Meetings will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning 2 weeks before the start of each semester.

If you pass the 2 quizzes. You are not cleared for class registration yet! We will check if you have completed the following steps:

  • Submitted the Advising Form
  • If transferring college work, please provide syllabi to your department/advisor
  • Removed all the holds on your MyNEVADA account

Once we confirm all the requirements are completed, we will temporarily remove your Admissions - Enrollment Hold from OISS and send you a notification. Please make sure that you register for classes within the temporary hold removal time because the hold will be back on to your account on the start date listed on your Form I-20 or Form DS-2019. You may not enroll in classes until your assigned enrollment appointment found on your MyNEVADA account. To permanently remove the hold, you have to complete the following:

  • All immunization requirements and Physical Evaluation Clearance Form
  • English Bridge Test at the Intensive English Language Center (IELC) if you are not eligible for a waiver. Can only be taken at the University
    • Students unable to attend the scheduled Bridge Placement Tests, may arrange for a personally more convenient time for a $150 fee. Failure to complete the Bridge Placement Test requirement may result in a hold being placed on the student's account
