Deadlines

Scholarships

The majority of UNLV scholarships do not require a separate application unless otherwise noted within the searchable scholarship database. If there is a separate application for a unique scholarship consideration, the deadline is Feb. 1 of each year for the upcoming school year.

Many UNLV scholarships also require Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to also be completed by Feb. 1 of each year for scholarship consideration.

Other UNLV Financial Aid Programs

The priority FAFSA filing date for UNLV financial aid programs is Feb. 1 of each year for the upcoming school year. Financial aid awards are made on a first-come, first served basis until program funding expires.

Federal Income Taxes Not Filed to Complete the FAFSA

If your federal income taxes are not completed by the Feb. 1 deadline, the FAFSA allows families to estimate their income to help meet the Feb. 1 application deadline. Once a family's federal income taxes have been completed, the FAFSA form can be corrected later. The U.S. Department of Education will forward the corrected FAFSA information to the Financial Aid & Scholarships Office. Don't forget to sign your FAFSA again with your PIN(and parents, if applicable) if you make FAFSA adjustments.
