FAFSA

Applying for FAFSA is the first step in becoming eligible for student loans, scholarships, and fellowships. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. UNLV’s school code to complete your FAFSA is 002569. Complete and sign your FAFSA with your PIN as soon as possible after November 1st of each year, even if you don’t expect to be eligible for financial aid and/or you do want student loans, because submitting your FAFSA may qualify you for certain scholarships or fellowships.

UNLV’s priority financial aid consideration deadline is November 1st of each year. You may still apply for financial aid after February 1st, however, there may be limited funding from other aid programs

Federal Loan Programs

Unsubsidized Loans

An unsubsidized loan is available to students regardless of financial need. You must be enrolled at least half time to be considered for this loan. You will be charged interest from the time the loan is disbursed until it is paid in full.

Graduate PLUSLoans

A Graduate PLUS Loan allows graduate students to borrow up to the financial aid cost of attendance less any other financial aid received. Please visit UNLV Financial Aid - Graduate PLUS Loans for more details.

Graduate Assistantships

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas subscribes to the following statement that has been adopted by the Council of Graduate Schools in the United States and by most of the leading graduate schools in North America:

Acceptance of an offer of a graduate scholarship, fellowship, traineeship, or graduate assistantship for the next academic year by an actual or prospective graduate student completes an agreement which both student and the graduate school expect to honor. In those instances in which the student indicates acceptance prior to April 15 and subsequently desires to change plans, the student may submit in writing a resignation of the appointment at any time through April 15 in order to accept another scholarship, fellowship, traineeship, or graduate assistantship. However, an acceptance given or left in force after April 15 commits the student not to accept another appointment without first obtaining formal release for that purpose. It is further agreed by the institutions and organizations subscribing to the above resolution that a copy of this resolution should accompany every scholarship, fellowship, traineeship, and assistantship offer sent to a first-year graduate student before April 15.

A number of state-supported and extramurally funded graduate assistantships are available each academic year. For full information and policy guidelines regarding the UNLV GA Program, please see the Graduate College website. Below are some key GA policies for your review:

  1. Applications must be completed and submitted through your Grad Rebel Gateway account. While deadlines vary by department, the Graduate College recommends that you submit your application by March 1st for the fall semester and by November 1st for consideration for the spring semester.
  2. Applications must be submitted to the department which you are seeking employment no later than March 1 proceeding the fall semester in which an assistantship is sought. Applications may be submitted after this date in case of unexpected openings occurring for the fall semester. In rare cases where an assistantship is available for the spring semester, the application deadline is November 15th.
  3. An assistantship is normally offered for a full academic year. If a student seeks renewal of an assistantship for the next year, a new application form must be submitted online.
  4. A graduate assistantship carries with it a stipend paid monthly for the academic year. This stipend may vary for extramurally funded assistantships. Tuition waivers are usually included with the assistantship. These waivers are approved only for work directly related to the student’s degree program (courses numbered 500 and approved for graduate credit and 700-level courses). This waiver covers a significant portion of the per credit hour fee. The state-funded tuition waiver does not cover differential fees charged for some courses. The tuition waiver covers the full amount of out-of-state tuition. The out-of-state tuition waiver does not apply to students who are enrolled in self-funded programs. Tuition waiver amounts may vary for extramurally funded assistantships.
  5. State funded graduate assistantships are not generally available during Summer term. However, tuition waivers are available for state-funded graduate assistants during the Summer Term if the student was on a state GA contract in spring, and has been renewed as a state GA for fall. To take advantage of the summer tuition waiver, the Graduate College must be informed via email at GradFinancialSVC@unlv.edu of your enrollment prior to the start of summer session. Tuition waivers are not available for undergraduate or audited courses. The above policies may differ for extramurally funded assistantships.
  6. Graduate assistants must have graduate standing status in a degree-seeking program at the time they begin their assistantships.
  7. New International GAs are required to successfully pass the Duolingo English Test prior to the start of the semester. Students who do not pass theDuolingo EnglishTestwill be required to enroll in ESL 580X, a 2 credit oral presentation skills course their first semester as a GA. Students whose graduate assistantship includes instructional duties (lecture, discussion groups, laboratory supervision, tutoring) must receive a successful grade in ESL 580X before resuming instructional duties.
  8. Graduate assistants must carry a minimum of six semester hours of graduate credit per fall and spring semester. To carry more than twelve semester hours of credit, the department chair, academic dean, and the Graduate Dean must approve an Overload Petition.Credit hours must be taken in residence to maintain GA eligibility unless an official consortium has been approved.
  9. Graduate assistants are expected to spend onaverage 20 hours per week on departmental duties in either instruction and/or research.
  10. Graduate assistants may not accept employment on or off campus without written permission from their faculty advisor, department chair, and Graduate College Dean. Graduate assistants are prohibited from being employed for more than 10 hours per week beyond their assistantship. The request for additional employment can be found in your Grad Rebel Gateway portal under the Forms- Additional Forms tab.
  11. Graduate assistants are expected to report in the same time-frame as faculty, i.e., during academic semesters and not during break or vacation times. Graduate Assistants must report one week prior to the start of classes in both the fall and spring semesters.
  12. New graduate assistants are expected, as part of their contract obligation, to attendthe New Graduate Student Orientation Sessionand complete the mandatory GA Onboarding video and quizprior to the start of the semester.
  13. Graduate assistantships will be terminated if the student does not satisfactorily perform assigned duties. Assistantships will also be terminated if a student does not make satisfactory progress toward the degree. Unsatisfactory progress includes, but is not limited to: filing a degree program late; receiving a grade of less than B; failing to remove an Incomplete grade after one calendar year; and failing comprehensive or qualifying examinations as required by the degree program.

Offers of assistantships, whether state-supported or extramurally funded, are valid only if they come from the Graduate College Dean.
