Transfer Admission Requirements


Return to Admission Information for Transfer Students  

Admission with advanced undergraduate standing is granted to a student transferring from another regionally accredited college or university, provided the transfer applicant meets four conditions.

The applicant must:

  • be in good standing at the educational institution last attended; and
  • must have earned at least 24 college-level credits;* and
  • have compiled an overall GPA of at least 2.5 on all college-level credits; and 
  • place into college-level English and mathematics courses or have completed college-level English and mathematics courses prior to transfer.

The Office of Admissions and Records will make a final admission decision only after applicants have provided official transcripts from each college or university attended. 

An applicant transferring to the university with fewer than 24 acceptable college-level credits will be required to satisfy the freshmen admission requirements.

Students who graduate from a Nevada System of Higher Education community college with a transferable associate degree will be admitted to the University of Nevada, Reno.

*At least half the units required for a bachelor’s degree must have been earned at a regionally accredited four-year institution.

Transfer Agreements

Every bachelor’s degree program description in this catalog includes a link to the transfer agreements that have been developed for that program.
