UNLV Financial Aid Questions

Hey guys, I'm considering UNLV as one of my college options, but I'm not sure how their financial aid packages work. Can anyone who has experience with their financial aid or any current/former UNLV students provide some insight? Thanks!

Hi there! I'm happy to provide some information about financial aid at UNLV. In general, UNLV offers a combination of federal, state, institutional, and private aid programs to help students pay for their education. Here's a brief overview of the types of aid they offer:

1. Federal Aid: This includes need-based grants (such as Pell Grants and SEOG), work-study, and loans. To apply for these, you should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as possible. UNLV's school code for the FAFSA is 002569.

2. State Aid: UNLV students are eligible for several state-sponsored financial aid programs, including the Nevada Silver State Opportunity Grant (SSOG), the Governor Guinn Millennium Scholarship, and the Nevada Promise Scholarship. Each of these programs has its own eligibility criteria and application process, so be sure to research which ones you may qualify for.

3. Institutional Aid: UNLV offers a variety of scholarships based on academic merit, major, and other factors. Some scholarships are automatically awarded to eligible students, while others require a separate application. You can use UNLV's Scholarship Search to find scholarships you may be eligible for.

4. Private Aid: You can also apply for private scholarships and grants from organizations outside of UNLV. These awards are not directly associated with the university, and the application process varies depending on the organization.

To maximize your financial aid at UNLV, make sure to file your FAFSA as early as possible, research state and institutional aid programs, and actively search for private scholarships. Also, keep an eye on deadlines, as missing out on any could potentially affect your financial aid package. Good luck with your college search!
