UCAN: University Credit
Nevada — and Beyond!
Academic credit courses for teacher recertification and career advancement are offered each year through Extended Studies at the University of Nevada, Reno. Students can earn credit on campus in the Reno area, on site in outlying areas and via electronic delivery.
Currently available courses, often including the course syllabus, are described at the UCAN WebReg site. Browse the site until you find the course that's right for you. Then go ahead and register! Be sure to check back periodically for new courses.
For other academic credit courses that reach the university's off-campus students, see Independent Learning courses.
Important note about financial aid
UCAN classes count toward financial aid. Please contact Dawna Snyder to ensure your class(es) are listed in MyNEVADA so that the financial aid office will count them as part of your credit load.
