Resources, Services and Referrals

Nevada State University recognizes that transition into university is exciting, challenging, and, at times, over- whelming. Students who are coming to Nevada State straight from high school have to adjust to the differing expectations and culture of the university. At the same time, these students are undergoing the transition from dependence to independence, forming their identities as young adults, and meeting many new people. Returning adults must also undergo challenging transitions to meet the demands and rigors of university study. Many returning adult students are juggling family, career, caring for older parents, and school. Nevada State University is committed to helping students succeed by offering a variety of resources and services to assist with the academic, social, or personal issues that may arise, including those listed below


Nevada State students enjoy a campus bookstore that reflects the Nevada State University brand, including a wide selection of school spirit apparel, as well as gifts for alumni, friends, and family. Course materials are offered in variety of options including rental, digital, used and new formats, ensuring students have access to the options and formats that best suit their needs.

In addition, the campus bookstore has an online presence at where students have the ability to order textbooks and school merchandise for in-store pickup or delivery.
