If you are interested in taking courses during the summer, and are in an eligible academic program, please download the Summer 2023 Financial Aid Form. The form can be found on the UNLV Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships - Forms page under the Summer Term Forms section. Complete this form in its entirety and submit it through the Rebel Success Hub by the date below that matches your earliest session of enrollment.

Summer I Session Priority Deadline Summer II Session Priority Deadline Summer III Session Priority Deadline
April 28, 2023 May 19, 2023 June 23, 2023

Submitting your completed Summer 2023 Financial Aid Form by this date ensures that you will receive your summer financial aid eligibility notification by the payment deadline. All forms received after the appropriate date will still be accepted and reviewed, but financial aid may not be in place before payment is due. You are responsible for payment of tuition and fees by the deadlines based on your UNLV summer sessions, even if your summer financial aid form has not been processed.

You must be meeting the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy in order to receive federal financial aid for the summer term. If you have not been meeting this policy (your SAP status is in “Warning," "Probation, or “Not Meeting"), or approaching your maximum number of attempted credits (your SAP status is on “Alert”) during the spring 2023 semester, final grades for spring 2023 must be posted before your financial aid eligibility can be determined for the summer 2023 term. In addition, federal aid eligibility in summer may be limited based on aid received in the preceding fall and spring terms.

Enrollment Impacts On Your Summer Financial Aid

If your summer term enrollment changes from what you listed initially on the summer aid form, an adjustment of your financial aid package and student account charges may be necessary.

Pell Grant

Our office will review student’s eligibility and determine if they are eligible for Pell Grant funding during the summer term. Pell Grant funding for the summer 2023 term is based on your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) from the 2022-2023 FAFSA among other factors. Some factors that affect Pell Grant funding include:

  • A student’s EFC
  • The number of credits a student enrolls in
  • Pell Grant Lifetime Eligibility Used (funding cannot exceed 600% or six-year equivalent of Pell)

Not sure if you are eligible for Pell Grant funding during the summer term?

Determining Pell Grant eligibility can be complex. Since our office determines financial aid eligibility manually, students should submit the “2023 Summer Financial Aid Form” so eligibility can be determined. Please note, some students may be required to enroll at least half-time (at least six undergraduate credits) during the summer term who were full time during the preceding fall and spring semesters.

Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans

Federal regulations limit the amount of subsidized and unsubsidized Federal Direct Loans a student may receive in an academic year (fall-spring-summer). Borrowing in fall and spring can therefore impact your ability to receive loans in summer.

For example:

  • An undergraduate student is a senior and received a $5,500 federal subsidized loan and a $7,000 federal unsubsidized loan for the school year. $2,750 of the subsidized loan and $3,500 of the unsubsidized loan were disbursed to the student in the fall semester, and $2,750 of the subsidized loan and $3,500 of the unsubsidized loan were disbursed to the student in the spring semester.
  • In this example, the annual loan limits are $5,500 in a subsidized loan and $7,000 in an unsubsidized loan.
  • Because the student used their full annual limits for the fall and spring semesters, there is no remaining federal loan eligibility for the summer term.

If a student has not used all of their Federal Direct Loan eligibility during the fall and spring semesters in the same academic year, they must be enrolled at least half time (at least 6 credit hours for undergraduate students, at least 5 credit hours for graduate or professional students, and 4 credit hours for law students) in the summer term to receive loans.

Federal Direct PLUS Loans

If a parent of a dependent student or graduate or professional student is interested in receiving a Direct PLUS Loan, they can apply online using the summer term dates of May 2023 – August 2023 on the PLUS application.

Please ensure that you complete the Master Promissory Note, Loan Entrance Counseling, and/or an Endorser Addendum as appropriate for your Direct PLUS Loan application and credit check. The Direct PLUS Loan is subject to the same priority deadlines as the 2023 Summer Financial Aid Form. To be considered for the PLUS loan, all students must complete the FAFSA form for the appropriate academic year.

Private Loans

If you have been approved for a private loan, complete the “2023 Summer Non-Federal Private Loan Form”. The form can be found on the UNLV Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships - Forms page under the “Summer Term Forms” section. Complete this form in its entirety and submit the form through the Rebel Success Hub by the date listed above that matches your earliest session of enrollment. The 2023 Summer Non-Federal Private Loan Form is subject to the same priority deadlines as the 2023 Summer Form for Financial Aid.

Millennium Scholarship

If you're eligible for the Governor Guinn Millennium Scholarship Program during the summer term, the Nevada Treasurer's Office will not credit your summer Millennium Scholarship to your MyUNLV account until the end of October 2023, in accordance with program scholarship rules. Any Millennium Scholarship funding for summer functions as a reimbursement. You are responsible for paying the amount listed on your student account by the tuition and fees payment deadline for the appropriate summer session.
