First-Year and Transfer Students
Entering freshman, transfer, and graduate students are considered for scholarships based on responses received via the online UNLV Admissions Application or Graduate College Application, official test scores, and official transcripts. Students admitted by December 1 are given priority for scholarship awarding.
For purposes of placement and awarding, official test scores and transcripts should be submitted to the UNLV Admissions Office or Graduate College (as appropriate) by December 1. Test scores are not always a requirement for admission to UNLV, but many scholarships require test scores for awarding purposes. Official test scores are defined as scores received via the College Board, ACT program, or other testing services or scores noted on an official transcript.
Please also submit a complete and valid FAFSA by December 1 for priority consideration of need based scholarships and the Provost’s, UNLV Excellence, and Rebel Scholarships.
Nontraditional students who have taken a break of 3 or more years can also qualify for additional funding through the Nontraditional Student website.
Graduate students may research additional funding opportunities by visiting the Graduate College website.
