Advising for New Freshmen Students
Fall semester freshmen
For new freshmen planning to enroll at the University for the first time during the Fall semester, make sure to participate in the Advanced Registration process so you can be enrolled into courses for the Fall semester.
Mandatory 1st semester academic advising will be provided during Summer Orientation. The sooner you participate in a Summer Orientation session, the sooner your advising hold is removed and you are able to make changes to your Fall schedule using MyNEVADA. Register for your Summer Orientation session at http://www.unr.edu/orientation/register.
Mandatory 2nd semester academic advising will be provided as an on-line process for College of Science freshmen; it will be available starting in early October.
