To ensure a successful transition to the University and graduation in four years, students must work with academic advisors at UNR and GBC throughout their career.

Students may earn an Associate of Arts, Associate of Science or Associate of Business degree after transferring to the University via reverse transfer . Talk with an academic advisor at GBC and/or UNR about this opportunity.

The Co-Admission program may provide the least costly route to a bachelors degree, including personalized academic advising from both institutions, certainty on how your specific courses will transfer and the exchange of transcripts between institutions at no additional cost to you.
