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 only to the employee, not their spouse or dependents. 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.
