Admission to the Major
Minimum GPA: 2.50
Transfer Policies: Students transferring to the College of Liberal Arts from another university or higher education institution may be admitted on probationary status if they have a transfer GPA between 2.00 and 2.49. These students must complete a probation contract with the Wilson Advising Center prior to their first registration. University policy states that a candidate for a bachelor's degree must complete the last 30 semester credits in uninterrupted residence as a major in the college from which the degree is expected.
Probation/Suspension: A student is subject to a one-semester suspension after being on probation (less than 2.50 UNLV GPA) for two consecutive semesters or for failure to make adequate progress towards a degree in the English major.
For academic advising, students should contact the College of Liberal Arts Wilson Advising Center . The Assistant Chair is the best authority on career advising and specific English Department requirements and can approve exceptions, when warranted. Failure to seek academic advising may result in delays of anticipated date of graduation.
