If you have received your official notification of acceptance to one of the programs at Touro University Nevada, congratulations!
Below are a few steps that will help you in the transition to TUN.
Housing: Don’t wait until the last minute. Start looking for convenient housing near the campus. There is a thriving residential community surrounding campus that includes single family homes and apartment complexes.
Financial Aid: Be sure you have your financial aid in order. You can find out about funding your education and the costs by program. If you have questions, our financial aid office is here to help you in applying for scholarships, grants, federal aid and loans, but the responsibility to complete the process in a timely manner is yours.
Orientation: This is one of the most important days on your journey to join TUN. On orientation day, you will have the chance to meet your classmates, faculty, staff and student organizations. Bring paper, pen, and laptop.
TUN E-mail: At orientation, you will be assigned a TUN email address. This is the way that students, faculty, and staff communicate official information.
Parking: Parking on campus is free in unreserved spaces. Students, faculty and staff are required to obtain a parking decal from the Division of Student Affairs to park on campus.
Lockers: Students may be issued lockers for personal use while enrolled at the university. No fee is charged for use of the lockers. Students must provide their own locks. The Division of Student Affairs will provide a locker assignment at orientation.
Laptop computer: TUN requires students to purchase a laptop from the university and provides support for students using those laptops.
Health Insurance: TUN requires students to enroll in TUN student health insurance. Watch your e-mail for information about how to enroll dependents or request an exception.
Student Health/Immunizations:Nevada state law requires that all students, who attend courses on campus or as part of a hybrid program, must provide documentation of having received the following immunizations, unless excused by religious belief or medical condition: Two doses of Measles, Mumps, & Rubella (MMR) if student was born in or after 1957 and Tetanus-diphtheria (Td) immunization within the last 10 years.
Students who are accepted to a program with a clinical component must provide records or proof of immunity to measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), varicella (chickenpox), Polio, Tdap (tetanus, diptheria, and pertussis combo), Hepatitis A and hepatitis B. A Quantiferon Gold Serum Test for Tuberculosis (Results no more than 6months old) is also required annually. Additional blood work may be required.
Upon acceptance, you will be contacted by the Student Health Center via email if your program requires proof of immunizations prior to course registration.
Resources: Please be sure you have sufficient funds to take care of your moving and living expenses. Financial aid refunds will not be available until after classes begin, so you should have at least a month of living expenses as well as money for textbooks and supplies.
