Applying to UNR? Confused about the application? Here is a step-by-step guide

Category : Uncategorized

The UNR application can be confusing as there are multiple parts. I’m attaching a link that walks you through the application along with the answers to some commonly asked questions (plus a few reminders)

 

    • UNR application tutorial: http://www.unr.edu/mynevadahelp/applynow/freshman
    • To start your application go to  http://www.unr.edu/admissions/how-to-apply
        • Official transcript (order through www.parchment.com).
          • There is a fee of $3.00 to send your transcript
          • Note on Parchment: make sure and check the box that reads “No, I do not want to be discovered by colleges and scholarship programs looking for students like me” if you do NOT want to receive emails and answer questions regarding their college search services
            • Lots of confusion there!
        • Official score report from either the SAT (https://sat.collegeboard.org/scores/send-sat-scores) or ACT (http://www.actstudent.org/scores/send/ )
          • There is a fee of $12 (SAT) and $12 (ACT) to send a copy of your test scores if you did not request them sent when you registered for the test
          • It is YOUR responsibility to monitor your MY NEVADA account and confirm that UNR has received all necessary application materials.
        • Note on your immunization record
          • Your immunization record should appear on your transcript so there should not be a need to send it in
          • You may need to contact UNR admissions to clarify if it states on your MYNevada account that it is still outstanding
  • Deadline to be eligible for financial aid is 2/1/2017
    • UNR must have received ALL components of your application, see above
    • Waiting to apply until January 28th will not get the job done if you want to maximize your aid. DON’T PROCRASTINATE!
  • On-campus housing is limited! If you plan on living in the dorms get your housing application in ASAP along with the $325 deposit, $250 of which is refundable should your plans change
  • Advanced registration deposit?
    • Paying an advanced registration deposit ($250) allows you to register for classes early. The earlier you register the more likely that you are to get the classes and class times that you want
      • The fee is refundable should your plans change
  • Applying is just the first step. After you receive notification that you have been accepted go to my.nevada.unr.edu and “log in”
    • 1. Activate your account
    • 2. Create your My Nevada account (tip: that password will stay with you until you graduate, make it one that is easy to remember)
  • Questions about your application?
    • Call 784-6968 or 682-8055 for admission status
