COMPASS Student Updates

2nd years can begin submitting 2 week course exemptions  and completing enrollment forms beginning Monday, July 2, 2018 between 8AM-1PM. Exemption proof must be submitted by August 2nd at 1PM or you must attend the 2 week course on August 13th at UNLV. All second year students are REQUIRED to attend the 2 week course UNLESS you complete ONE of the following AND submit proof to NSHS:

  • Completion of a summer college class. (Submit a transcript with your grade posted)
  • Completion of 60 pre-approved volunteer hours. (MUST be pre-approved PRIOR to submission)
  • Completion of a high school course (.5 credits) via CCSD Summer School (provide grade)

Students can submit their 2 week course exemption proof through a help ticket but must submit their enrollment form IN-PERSON at their NSHS home campus. Students are also required to bring the following documents when completing enrollment (available in PDF attached to announcement):

  • Updated Income Verification Form (FRL)
  • The Student Handbook Acknowledgment page signed by the parent/guardian and student after both have reviewed the document (see "NSHS Student Parent Handbook SY1819" under Main Menu
  • Residency Form
  • Acceptable Use Policy Form

2nd years will sign your enrollment forms provided by your NSHS campus confirming your re-enrollment into Nevada State High School at this time. Failure to sign your enrollment form will result in payment for your college classes being dropped. 

Important Dates

  • July 2nd: In-Person Academic Success Meetings begin (sign up under "Fall 2018 Academic Success Meetings" at the top)
  • August 2nd: 2-week course exemption deadline
