Fees and Waivers

Orientation Fee

All new UNLV degree-seeking students are charged a one-time, nonrefundable orientation fee of $120. This fee, which automatically appears on your UNLV account upon registering for your first semester classes, includes:

  • Orientation program services and materials
  • New student advising and registration services
  • Orientation breakfast and lunch for students
  • Rebel gear and prizes
  • Your first UNLV RebelCard (student ID card)

Orientation Fee Waiver

Orientation Fee Waivers are granted if you:

  • Did not attend an orientation session and did not attend classes at UNLV.
  • Have previously attended UNLV, did not complete a degree program, and paid the orientation fee.

Students seeking a second degree program are required to pay the orientation fee.

Please contact orientation@unlv.edu if you believe that you meet the waiver criteria above and still have the orientation fee listed on your account.
