THINK is taught by faculty from the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). Students are enrolled in one course as a UNR student to receive college credit for completed courses. In many cases, these credits may be transferable at the high school or college level. These courses are offered exclusively to THINK students.

How It Works

• Students are enrolled in ONE of the following 3 or 4 credit course options;
classes with 4 credits include a laboratory portion.

• Course preferences are ranked in the application and enrollment is first-come, first-served.

• Please see prerequisite information for each course to determine your eligibility.

• A tentative course syllabus will be linked for each course in the spring.
