Silver State Transfer Program

Reading room

The Co-Admission program is a bridge from the Nevada Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) community colleges to the University of Nevada, Reno. Program participants have the opportunity to work one-on-one with advising specialists as they transition to the University of Nevada, Reno. The purpose of the program is to support community college students as they prepare to transfer, ensuring a smooth transition to the baccalaureate degree. Students who are in the program may take courses from both the community college and the University at the same time that they are pursuing their transferable Associate's degree. The community college remains the home campus for co-admit students.
