College of Science Advising
Advising for transfer students
Transfer students who have been admitted to the University should complete the following steps to prepare for a successful advising experience:
STEP 1: Accept your admission in MyNEVADA and check your "Transfer Credit: Report" in MyNEVADA to view information on transcript(s) the University's Office of Admissions & Records has received/processed and to view how your transfer credits were articulated. Contact the Office for Admissions & Records with any inquiries or questions: (775) 784-4700 or firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: The Office of Admissions & Records articulates transfer credits for Core Curriculum requirements; any transfer course articulation for a major requirement is done by a faculty advisor using the appropriate exception form.
Generate and review your MyNevada Academic Advising Report to view your progress to degree completion; bring a copy of this report to your advising appointment.
Review program requirements and the Recommended Schedule (also known as a 4-year-plan) for your intended major in the University's online General Catalog.
Unique advising situations

Advising for probation/dismissal
Undergraduate students are placed on academic probation when a student’s cumulative University of Nevada GPA is below 2.0. Students who are placed on Academic Probation will receive a letter notifying them of their academic status.
Please see the University's General Catalog, section 4.2 for more information on probation and dismissal.
For students alerted of probation status, or students who would like to appeal dismissal, please schedule an appointment with your academic advisor.
