For the first time today, I’m addressing parents AND students. I appreciate that the transition from high school to college is difficult for both students and parents. It might help to have some guidelines for conversations between parents and students about school in the first year.

For academics. Unfortunately, FERPA laws prevent anyone at UNR from sharing student academic information with anyone other than the student. We advise parents to ask their students specific questions to target their engagement in the classroom. Examples of questions that may be beneficial are:

  • Are you using each of your class syllabi regularly to stay current with your class required assignments and readings?
  • Have you utilized the library to study, meet with study groups or use technology resources?
  • Have you looked into available tutoring resources that you may need for your classes?
  • Are you using WebCampus to stay current with class assignments, materials and updates?
  • Do you know when your professors scheduled office hours are and are you willing to take advantage of them?

For advising: Although it seems like the dust has just settled for the fall semester, spring semester will come before we know it. By November, students need to be prepared to register for their spring classes. To prepare for this, students have many resources that they should take advantage of.

  • They should know how to access and use the Advising Manual and use it to research the various degrees and degree requirements.
  • They should be comfortable explaining the requirements for Business Pre-Majors. This includes knowing which of the classes they have completed and which they should try to enroll in for spring.
  • They should be aware of advising resources and policies including the College of Business Student Success Center in Ansari Business Building Room 409.

Now that all of our new incoming students have been through summer orientation, we went to remind everybody to recheck their fall semester schedules to make sure that everything is PERFECT for the upcoming semester! Follow the steps below and use our advising webpage – especially the BRAND NEW Advising Manual and PowerPoint Presentation for New Incoming Students.

Steps to finalize your fall semester schedule:

First, review your ACT/ SAT scores. Make sure that MyNEVADA shows the most current test scores.

  • Log on to MyNEVADA; select Student Center Dashboard (top left); select “Test Scores” from the drop down menu.
  • If your scores are incorrect:
    • Contact Admissions and Records to verify that they have received your latest scores.
    • Contact College Board to have your scores re-sent if Admissions and Records does not have them on file.
    • If your scores are correct, make sure that you are enrolled in the appropriate corresponding course according to Test Score Placement for Math and English.
    • If you do not feel as though your test scores accurately represent your math abilities, consider taking the Accuplacer.

Next, check your Advanced Placement (AP)/International Baccalaureate (IB) scores.

Then, verify the times and days of your classes.

  • Remember, balance is key – try to schedule your classes out so that you will go to class!
  • Set yourself up for success by creating a schedule that best fits your lifestyle.

Finally, verify that each of your classes is moving you closer to completing your degree.

  • Make sure that you are enrolled in an English class.
  • Make sure that you are enrolled in a math class.
  • Every other class in your schedule should be either a pre-business core class, core curriculum requirement or planned elective (like BUS 101).

Remember, the search box located on the top of every University of Nevada, Reno and College of Business webpage is a wonderful resource for finding any additional information you may need!
