COVID-19 Impact on Merit-Based Scholarships
We sympathize with the stress that students face today. We believe that we can do better for you in this uncertain time, and we are re-evaluating our merit-based scholarship awarding process for the fall 2021 semester.
As we update this process, please note that our priority deadline remains November 1, 2020. Be sure to complete the FAFSA or Alternate Need Form and be admitted to UNLV by this date for priority consideration.
We look forward to sharing our revised merit-based scholarship awarding process with you soon.
If you have any questions or concerns, contact your admission counselor or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We're happy to help.
Entering freshmen are considered for scholarships based on responses received via the online UNLV Admissions Application, official test scores, official transcripts, and results from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students admitted by November 1 are given priority for scholarship awarding.
To compete for entering freshmen scholarships, submit your official high school transcript and official SAT or ACT scores to the UNLV Admissions office by November 1. Official test scores are defined as scores received by UNLV directly from the College Board and/or ACT program, or as noted on an official transcript. Unofficial test scores, including scores hand-delivered to the UNLV Financial Aid and Scholarship and UNLV Admissions offices, will not be considered for scholarship awarding purposes.
For priority consideration of need based scholarships and the Provost’s, UNLV Excellence, and Rebel Scholarships, submit a complete and valid FAFSA by November 1 and any additional documents requested by the UNLV Financial Aid and Scholarships office by their given deadline.
Students are considered for scholarships between November and April. Only students who are offered a UNLV scholarship will receive an award notification from the Financial Aid & Scholarships Office. Award notifications are delivered through the MyUNLV system.
