Nevada State College Now Accepting Applications for First-Ever On-Campus Student Housing

Nevada State College announced that its first-ever on-campus student housing is nearing completion. The application process is currently underway for the fall 2020 semester. Most housing units will be available for occupancy prior to the start of the fall semester.

The 342-bed housing village, which can also accommodate students with families, is centrally located on the the main campus and includes one-, two- and four-bedroom floor plans. Residents will have several amenities available to them such as a state-of-the-art fitness center, swimming pool, fully furnished apartments, full kitchens, in-unit washer and dryer, study lounges, and planned community events. The project, previously approved by the NSHE Board of Regents, is a 100% privately financed, built and managed project.

Student housing has been a longtime initiative for the leadership team at Nevada State College as it continues to be identified as one of the major barriers for students who want to pursue higher education.

“The Nevada State College student housing project is a result of working with our students to identify their most critical needs. On campus housing has been proven to help students overcome obstacles and increase success in completing degrees” said Bart Patterson, president of Nevada State College.

The student housing also comes with 24/7 on-call staff for any student needs and provides roommate matching for anyone looking to share an apartment. Rent, which includes Wi-Fi and utilities, ranges from $550 to $1,200 per person.

Nevada State College’s student housing is being developed by American Public Development, LLC, constructed by Sletten Construction, and will be managed by American Campus Communities, a national student housing operation that has experience in introducing first-time student housing to college campuses.

The College is planning a mix of on-line and hybrid classes (part on-line\part in person) for the fall 2020 semester, but students can be released from their lease and any deposits returned in the event only on-line classes are permitted for fall 2020. The housing project will open with all appropriate safety protocols to address COVID-19 concerns.

Nevada State Releases Flexible Plan for Fall 2020 Classes for Current and Prospective Students

Nevada State College, the second fastest growing college in the nation, has announced plans to safely and effectively resume classes for the Fall 2020 semester ahead of July 1 admissions priority deadline. The Fall 2020 plan ensures current and prospective students receive quality educational experiences as they continue their path to graduation.

Nevada State College, which is the most affordable four-year college in the state, offers 24 bachelor’s degrees in several areas of study. Tuition for Fall 2020 full-time students begins at $2,400 a semester and several financial aid opportunities are available for those who qualify.

Due to the current landscape impacted by a global pandemic, many class formats will change to an online platform. For students who have not participated in online classes before or who may find this format daunting, Nevada State College is offering a Student Online Preparedness tutorial designed to prepare students for online instruction.

To accommodate the current circumstances, fall 2020 courses will be offered in several formats:

  • Online Classes “Web Courses” including Zoom sessions with professors:

Asynchronous Classes – Do not require the use software to meet with the instructor/class at a specific time. Assignments are completed entirely online. These classes will not have any times or dates listed on the schedule.

Synchronous Classes – Will require you to meet with the instructor/class at specific times and dates using video conference software such as Zoom. To participate in this class, it is necessary to meet with the instructor/class virtually during set times.

  • Hybrid Classes – Will require you to meet in-person on campus, but less frequently than a traditional in-person course. A significant portion of the course will be completed online.

Courses that require an in-person component will be limited in size to reduce the overall number of students in the classroom and will follow the guidelines set forth by the State and Nevada System of Higher Education. If courses require in-person instruction, special exceptions will be made for students who are at an elevated risk for COVID-19 or for students who live with someone who is considered high-risk.

To continue its support of students, Nevada State College will open all of its student services such as the library, café, Academic Success Center and Career Center. In addition, Nevada State College is developing spaces where students can study and work safely. Face coverings will be mandatory in all interior common spaces and classrooms as well as outside areas where the six-foot social distance guideline cannot be maintained.
