UNLV Staff Enrichment Award
UNLV is proud to be the first Nevada System of Higher Education institution to offer a tuition assistance award program to help the spouses, domestic partners and dependents of classified employees pursue their education goals! This award program began in FALL 2018. Application procedures, guidelines and answers can be found on the HR's website.
Classified employees’ spouses, domestic partners and dependents, who are admitted to UNLV as undergraduate students, may apply for the award each academic year. The award may be used only for undergraduate courses, and may be used only for courses taken at UNLV. Classified employee's dependents must meet the following criteria:
- Must be a spouse, domestic partner or financially dependent child of a current classified employee at UNLV.
- “Financially dependent child” shall mean a natural, adopted or step child of a classified staff member who is not financially independent, is claimed as an exemption for federal income tax purposes under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code (26 U.S.C. § 152), and has not attained the age of 24. The classified staff member must attest to a dependency each time an award is issued. UNLV may at any time request proof of dependent eligibility for verification purposes.
- A domestic partner and their financially dependent children are also eligible if the domestic partnership is registered with the office of the Nevada secretary of state.
- Must be eligible for undergraduate admission to UNLV.
This award program is available for each term (Fall, Spring, Summer I, II and III). Once the application is reviewed, the Financial Aid office will process the award and the amount will be posted on the student's MyUNLV account.
