Common Tuition & Fees

UNLV’s tuition and fees are established by the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) Board of Regents.

After you have registered for classes, you will receive an invoice with an estimated amount for your tuition and fees. Student Account statements are e-mailed to students' Rebel e-mail beginning the 10th of every month. These are a point in time snapshot of your account activity. For up-to-date account information, review your student account under the account inquiry section of MyUNLV.

Tuition and fees are established by the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) Board of Regents and are subject to change without notice.  For a complete listing, reference Chapter 7 - Tuition and Fees, of the NSHE Procedures and Guidelines Manual.

Other Fees

Excess Credit Fee

$121.13 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
