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.

Guest Orientation Fee

Family members and guests are welcome to attend New Student Orientation. The mandatory $25 guest orientation fee includes access to special sessions, program materials, breakfast and lunch. This fee does not include travel or hotel accommodations. Payments must be made by credit or debit card through the Student Center on your MyUNLV Account. This fee can be paid during the online orientation registration process, and we kindly ask that all payments are processed prior to your orientation session to allow for an expedited check-in process. Family & guest orientation fees are nonrefundable. Confirmed guest reservations cannot be canceled and payment is required for each guest included on the reservation. You may bring a new guest in place of one who is unable to attend. Please contact orientation@unlv.edu for any questions about this fee.
