We are closely monitoring these issues and have addressed your concerns by making temporary revisions to admission requirements for the 2020-2021 admissions cycle. Please review the COVID-19 FAQs below and contact your program manager, Geraldine Andrews-Eubanks, gandrews@touro.edu if you have any additional questions. Thank you for your continued interest.

Additional Information

The completion of requirements of any program or endorsement does not grant licensure by the Nevada State Department of Education, nor does it grant employment by any public or private school.

Adaptive PE students will be required to perform physical tasks to practice the techniques and strategies. Program fulfillment will also involve locations throughout the Valley.

All onground courses require proof of immunizations prior to registration. Nevada state law prohibits students from attending class without proof of immunizations. Touro University Nevada upholds this statute by preventing course registration for students who have not submitted proper proof of immunizations. Online courses do not require proof of immunizations. 

Financial Aid Disclaimer

Students participating in the Advanced Studies program are ineligible for financial aid. Students may be eligible for credit-based private loans processed externally to Touro Nevada. For more information about eligibility, please contact the Office of Financial Aid.

Failure to comply with the above requirements by the date stated in your admissions invitation letter will result in revocation of the admission invitation.

Disclaimer: Admission requirements are subject to change.
