If you are not a resident, you would pay out of state tuition for your first year, then the remaining three years you can pay instate rates as long as you get a Nevada ID or DL License as soon as you arrive. (need to maintain residency for one year before instate rates kick in). Public transportation runs almost 24/7. The school doesn't have actual concentrations, but the...
