MyNEVADA Enrollment Guide

MyNEVADA makes it easy to complete all of your enrollment tasks, including adding classes, dropping classes, and swapping classes -- all from your Enrollment tile on your Student Homepage. From the Enrollment tile, you can not only add, drop, or swap classes, but also see your class schedule, browse the course catalog, review your planner, and more.

An Important Note About Navigating MyNEVADA Enrollment 

After a system upgrade, we have noticed that when students select navigations from the Enrollment such as Browse Course Catalog or Planner, when navigating back to resources such as Class Search and Enroll or Drop classes, the actions and pages look different. 

We strongly suggest if you are using the enrollment tile and the icons on the page look like the ones below, that you navigate back to your student homepage and start fresh from the Class Search and Enroll navigation after you are done using the catalog or planner. 

Wrong Icons: 

Navigations under the Enrollment tile in MyNEVADA. Class Search and Enroll highlighted in green.

Correct Icons: 

Navigations under the Enrollment tile in MyNEVADA. Class Search and Enroll highlighted in green.

Attempting enrollment under the incorrect icons may result in incomplete class offerings when searching for courses. 

Adding Classes in MyNEVADA

After clicking on the enrollment tile, click on the "Class Search and Enroll" link from the left-hand menu (see screenshot below). Your active terms will be displayed, and you can now select the term for which you would like to register.

You will then be directed to your Enrollment Shopping Cart. Enrolling for classes is a lot like online shopping! You will need to search for the class you want, select the class to have it added to your shopping cart, and then proceed through the checkout process. Your Shopping Cart allows you to see which classes you already have in your cart, and gives you access to the Class Search.

Ensure that you have the correct term listed at the top. Now you can search for the classes you would like to enroll in. There are several ways to search: by course number or name, by subject, by catalog number, or by instructor's last name.

To access the search, use the "Search" option. In the search box, you can enter the subject and course number and then click the "Search" button/link. For example, for English 101, you could search for the course abbreviation (ENG) and the course number (101). Your search should return a list of available classes. You can scroll through the results to find the course you want.

To utilize other ways to search, use the  "Additional Search Criteria" portion of this page. Here you can input specific meeting pattern options, instruction mode, instructor last name, keywords, sessions and course attributes.  You can use each of these search fields to narrow or expand your search accordingly.

After searching for and locating the class you'd like to add to your schedule, click on the "Select" button next to the course you would like to add.

After submitting your drop class request, you will see one of two options next to your class selection.

Green Check Mark- If the drop request was successful, you will see a message confirming the class was dropped.

Red X - The red X indicates a problem with your request. Common issues include trying to drop a co-requisite of another class that you are currently enrolled in without dropping the other course. You have to drop those courses together.

If you are experiencing issues or problems with dropping a class, please contact the Office of Admissions and Records at (775) 784-4700, option 2 or by email at mynevada@unr.edu for assistance.
