NSHE ID

The NSHE ID provides a system-wide unique identifier for each student, faculty and staff member within the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE)

Students, faculty and staff will be issued a system-wide unique NSHE ID.  The NSHE ID will provide continuity and security for individuals when dealing with system-wide issues. While Instructors and Advisors may still use their NetID to log into MyNevada, students should use their NSHE ID. Instructions for retrieving, and resetting the password for, an NSHE ID, can be found on the MyNevada Help site.

MyNEVADA

The MyNEVADA website provides a one-stop package of tools for faculty, staff and students to access and manage their University "lives". 

Students can use MyNevada to search for a class, register, check financial aid, view academic history, and pay tuition. Students can also access grades, degree audits and transcripts. MyNevada should also be used by students (who are not also employees of UNR) to update their contact details with the University.

Instructors can use MyNevada to view their class rosters, assign grades, and contact students in their classes.

Further information on accessing and using the various features of MyNevada can be found on the MyNevada Help site.
