Accelerated BS/MS Process
Although the deadlines can be flexible, it is strongly recommended that forms are submitted prior to October 1st for Spring acceptance and March 1st for Fall acceptance.
Step 1 - Students must meet with undergraduate AND graduate advisors, choose classes, and get signatures from both advisors (reserve at least 1 day per advisor). This step can take multiple days if the student chooses two different faculty members.
Note: Though students usually list two semesters of classes on the application, the Graduate School can give enrollment permissions only for the first semester classes. Students must contact the College of Engineering Advising Center prior to the opening of registration for the second semester to get enrollment permissions for the second semester classes. For example, if the student has Spring 2019 and Fall 2019 classes listed on the form, once approved, the Graduate School will give permissions to enroll for Spring 2019 classes. The student must contact the College Advising Center and the Graduate School in March 2019 to request enrollment permissions for the Fall 2019 graduate classes.
Step 2 - Students bring the signed application to the College of Engineering Advising Center front desk (EJCH 108) where staff will place the application in the advisor’s mailbox.
Step 3 - Advisors determine if the student has met the criteria for admission and then sends the form to the Associate Dean for signature (3-5 business days).
Step 4 - The application is returned to a College Advisor for further processing (1-2 business days). College Advisors email the Graduate School requesting that the student be given permission to enroll in the specific graduate courses listed on the form. The advisor will include the student in the email requesting course permissions so that the student will be notified when the Graduate School staff responds.
Step 5 - Grad School response (2-5 business days).
Step 6 - The student enrolls in the approved classes when their MyNevada registration appointment time arrives.

Note: To make changes to their approved course list, students must resubmit the application form, which will require them to start from Step 1.
Note: All times are approximate.
