Changes to Your Fall Schedule

At Nevada State College we want to do everything we can to put you on a degree pathway to success.  In doing so, we need to ensure that you are taking courses that apply toward the completion of a declared program of study (in this case, a major or minor). If the schedule created for you does not work due to extenuating circumstances, you may petition the Coordinator of Orientation for a schedule change. Please complete the following form to begin a review of your first semester schedule. This process takes 2-4 business days, and you will be notified via email of the final decision made by the Academic Advising Center. If you are requesting a schedule change based on major change, EdReady completion, and/or prior course completion then your schedule will be adjusted accordingly and sent to you via email. Please provide all requested information below, failure to complete all required information could result in the delay of processing. Schedule Change Petition Form
