Excess Credit Fee
$99.63 per credit
An Excess Credit Fee shall be charged to a student who has attempted credits equal to 150 percent of the credits required for the student's program of study. The amount of this additional fee is equal to 50 percent of the per credit registration fee. Attempted credits include all graded courses on a student's transcript, including but not limited to the grades of F and W (withdrawal) and repeated courses. The fee will be charged, for example, after 90 credits have been attempted towards a 60-credit associate's degree or 180 credits towards a 120-credit bachelor's degree. Exceptions may apply on a case-by-case basis. The fee will be charged in all terms after passing the threshold number of credits until a degree is awarded to the student. An appeal procedure and other exceptions to this fee are outlined in the catalog.
An appeals process exists for students who are charged the fee. Please complete the Excess Credit Fee Appeal form

The Board of Regents of the State of Nevada approved a proposal in December 2010 for the School of Nursing, School of Business, School of Architecture and Department of Physical Therapy at UNLV to implement differential tuition to these programs effective Spring 2012. Please refer to the Board of Regents Manual, Section 7, on Differential Fees for a breakdown of the additional costs associated with these programs.
