Students are initially notified of eligibility for the Millennium Scholarship program in early August. Qualifying students will receive an award packet of information from the Nevada Treasurer's GGMS Office describing the terms and conditions of the scholarship program. Once notified of their eligibility, students are required to complete the Acknowledgement of Award process online. As part of the acknowledgement process, each student is required to complete an affidavit declaring that the applicant is a citizen of the United States or has lawful immigration status, or that the applicant has filed an application to legalize the applicant’s immigration status or will file an application to legalize his or her immigration status as soon as he or she is eligible to do so.
Eligible students will be awarded Millennium after UNLV receives a list of eligible students in early August. Students will receive a financial aid award letter and can view their Millennium award under the Financial Aid tab on their MyUNLV.
If you do not receive a notification by early August and you do not see a Millennium award on your MyUNLV, but believe you are eligible for the scholarship, you should look up your Millennium Student Identification (MSID) number to verify eligibility. If you see your MSID but do not have an award, you should contact the Financial Aid Office at UNLV.
The GGMS Offices notifies UNLV electronically of eligible students and UNLV matches these GGMS records to records in the student information system.
At UNLV, the Millennium Scholarship does not pay 100 percent of a student's full-time tuition and fees. The value of your award is $80 per credit hour, up to 15 credit hours per semester, with an undergraduate lifetime total award value of $10,000. Remedial credits are not paid for by the Millennium Scholarship, but they may count toward the student's required 12 credits/semester.
