Information about financial assistance, such as grants, scholarships, loans and employment opportunities, are available through the UNLV Financial Aid & Scholarships office. Students interested in financial aid need to submit a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The Financial Aid office offers a tuition management system whereby students can pay fees monthly over a set period of time. The UNLV Graduate College also offers various scholarships, fellowships, and graduate assistantships; more information can be found at Financing Graduate Studies. The application for graduate assistantships can be found on the Grad Rebel Gateway.
The School of Social Work offers some need/merit-based scholarships in the amount of $2000.00. Students must file a FAFSA application to be considered for these scholarships.
