The UNLV acceptance letter doesn't specify what grade must be obtained for remaining pre reqs. Does anyone know if it is the standard C ?

Sorry, I don't know. I don't have any more pre-reqs to complete for UNLV, and thus my letter says nothing about that.

Bump!

Not sure if he means there was something specific on his letter, but I am assuming we all got the same one.

On the form that you send back in for the deposit that came with the actual acceptance letter there was a general thing at the bottom stating that you are still required to complete all pre-reqs and that they will check official transcripts before matriculation.

Sounds pretty general to me so unless it named specific classes I would guess all of ours said that.



FYI here is the pre-req list from UNLV taken from their website:


PREREQUISITES

I'm missing physics II and Biochem.

I'm just wondering what they mean by "successful completion".

C or better? (not including C-?) or maintain gpa? or other?

Why don't you just call and ask? People on here could tell you anything. Nothing better than getting a solid and valid answer from the school.
