If you are taking classes at two Nevada System of Higher Ed institutions, you may be eligible to receive aid based on combined UNLV enrollment and enrollment at other eligible institutions, such as the College of Southern Nevada (CSN), University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), or Nevada State College (NSC), under certain conditions. During your semester of dual enrollment, you must be fully admitted and enrolled at least half time but less than full time at UNLV during the same semester.
Students should talk with a financial aid counselor before they complete a consortium agreement form. Some students do not need to complete a consortium agreement form even if they are attending two different schools.
A UNLV junior class standing only has $5,500 federal subsidized loan and is enrolled in six credit hours. The same UNLV student wants to also take six credit hours at the College of Southern Nevada (CSN) and combine the credit hours between both schools for a total of 12 credit hours.
In this case, completing a consortium agreement is not necessary. The $5,500 subsidized loan is the maximum subsidized loan the student can receive at six or more credit hours. Trying to combine the CSN credit hours with the UNLV credit hours will not increase any additional financial aid eligibility.
Millennium Scholarship Recipients
Millennium Scholarship recipients desiring to use their scholarships at two Nevada schools are also required to complete an additional form for the Nevada State Treasurer's Office. If you do not complete this form, you will not be able to use your Millennium Scholarship under the consortium agreement.
