2021 Financial Aid Deadlines

Priority Deadline

The priority deadline for consideration for most UNLV scholarships and grants is November 1 of each year. You may still apply after the deadline; however, institutional funding may be limited or no longer available. Eligibility for federal grants, loans, and work-study is not subject to the November 1 deadline.

You will need to submit a new Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Alternative Need Determination Form before each academic year you wish to apply for scholarships and other types of financial aid. You can file as early as October 1 for the following academic year.
