Professional Development

Classified Staff Development Fund

Have you taken a seminar, professional development course, attended a conference or meeting or other event?
Have you paid dues or membership fees for work-related organizations for which you were not reimbursed?

If so, and if you are a classified employee (50 percent FTE or more), we invite you to apply for the Classified Staff Development Fund Award.

Grant-in-Aid Program

As a classified employee, you are eligible for education assistance through the UNLV grant-in-aid (GIA) program. This benefit applies to the employee. Under the program, if you enroll in undergraduate or graduate courses at UNLV, CSN, or NSC, the university will pay a portion of your tuition for state-supported, summer session, and community college courses.

For more information, please visit HR's website.

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 will be available beginning FALL 2018.  Application procedures are being developed now.  More information will follow.
