If you receive a failing grade, incomplete, audit, or withdrawal from a class, these credits cannot be counted toward your credit requirements. Further, undergraduates are required to maintain a 2.00 cumulative UNLV GPA and graduate students are required to maintain a 3.00 cumulative UNLV GPA.
If you fail to meet the SAP standards during the fall or spring semester, you will be notified by letter of your SAP standing and of alternatives and requirements to meet standards by the end of the summer semester. You will be placed on financial aid probation and will have the summer term to raise your overall GPA and/or complete the required deficient credits. If you do not remove the deficiencies by the end of the summer term, you will be placed on financial aid suspension and will be ineligible for any further assistance until the deficiencies are cleared. Please review the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy for further details.
- When are refund checks mailed? Can I come in and pick mine up?
Refund checks are mailed once a week. Refund checks may not be picked up under any circumstances. There is a very short window of time to have the checks signed and taken to the post office for mailing. Trying to pull one check for pickup can put all the refunds in jeopardy of getting mailed that day. Therefore, we will not accept any requests for refund pickups.
- How do I make a total withdrawal from UNLV?
Official withdrawal must be made through the Office of the Registrar. A stop payment placed on a check does not constitute withdrawal from the university and the student will be responsible for fees resulting from the stop payment. Do not listen to any department that says to stop payment on your check instead of waiting for a refund. We refund a minimum of weekly, so you will receive a refund before the university even receives a returned stop payment check. If you have any questions please call the Cashier's Office at 702-895-3683, option #1.
- What will happen to my financial aid if I withdraw from UNLV?
If you completely withdraw during any semester at UNLV, you will be subject to the Federal Return of Title IV Funds Policy as conducted by Financial Aid & Scholarships. Federal law requires the amount of student financial assistance you have earned up to the point of withdrawal be determined by a specific calculation. The amount of assistance you have earned is determined on a pro-rata basis. For example, if you completed 30 percent of the payment period or period of enrollment, you earned 30 percent of the assistance you were originally scheduled to receive. You are responsible for any assistance awarded to you for which you do not qualify or earn. You will be notified of the overpayment that you may have to repay in a timely manner. You will be ineligible for future federal and state financial assistance at UNLV or other institutions until you repay the amount due.
Please realize that even if you repay the overpayment amount, you are subject to the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy.
