Administrative History

The College of Extended Studies functioned as the academic outreach arm of the University, providing university level, lifelong educational opportunities for Nevadans. Live distance education courses were offered for remote students to enable them to earn college credit or for professional development. Locations included Carson City, Elko, Ely, Eureka, Fallon, Gardnerville, Hawthorne, Jackpot, Las Vegas, Lovelock, Minden, Reno, Round Mountain, Sparks, Tonopah, West Wendover, Winnemucca and Yerington. The College also provided student advising for the Bachelor of General Studies degree program and had administrative responsibility for the Master of Judicial Studies, a specialized degree program for judges, which was organized jointly by the University, the National Judicial College, and the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges. The Program for Adult College Education (PACE) offered a way for undergraduate students to earn a degree by taking evening and weekend classes. In 2001, the University collaborated with Western Nevada Community College to begin offering a bachelor of technology in construction sciences degree program, which was administered by the College of Extended Studies. During University reorganization efforts in 2003, the unit lost its designation as a college and became Extended Studies.
