University of Nevada, Las Vegas

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) is a public research institution committed to rigorous educational programs, and promoting well-being and achievement through education, research, scholarship, and creative activity for our diverse faculty, students, staff, alumni, and community. UNLV’s drive to rise among the nation’s top public research universities took a major step forward this week when it was elevated to R1 “very high research activity” status by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. R1 is the gold standard for university research classifications, and out of 4,000 institutions nationwide, UNLV now is one of just 130 with the distinction. UNLV had been classified as “high research activity,” or R2, in Carnegie’s last update in 2015.

Why you should attend?

UNLV established the Military & Veteran Services Center (MVSC) to better serve our growing student veteran and military family community by developing a welcoming, veteran-friendly campus that fosters academic and personal success. We understand the many challenges associated with pursuing a degree and the challenges associated with transitioning from the military to the civilian world. Working with the Las Vegas Veteran Engagement Community Council for veteran resources and our VetSuccess office on campus to meet these needs, MVSC is staffed with veterans and GI Bill®-experienced staff to assist 1,869 veterans, dependents, active duty service members, National Guard members and reservists with answers to questions concerning admissions, GI Bill® enrollment certification, financial aid resources, campus and community support services, and various networks for veteran employment opportunities.
