Review more information on the effectiveness of Advanced Registration
What do 3,183 students, a 93.2% full-time semester-to-semester retention rate, and an average enrollment of 15.8 credits all have in common? They are all characteristics of the freshmen class of Fall 2016 that participated in the University of Nevada, Reno’s Advanced Registration program.
Advanced Registration is a first semester recruitment and matriculation tool coordinated out of the Office of Admissions and Records. It is used to ensure enrollment in degree applicable courses, reduce enrollment melt of newly admitted freshmen, and assist with new student transition from high school. Advanced Registration partners student services with academic advising teams to enroll all new incoming freshmen into their first semester classes.

Since its full implementation in 2013, the number of students who have participated has increased, as well as the average number of credits that students are enrolled in. Below is a breakdown of the average number of first semester credits that Advanced Registration students are enrolled in.
