Student Health Insurance

The Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) Committee was formed to provide broad campus involvement in the management and fine-tuning of the Student Health Insurance Plan. The Committee endeavors to provide a health insurance plan that balances meeting the essential medical and mental health needs of our diverse student body with an affordable premium price.

Student Life Funding (CSUN)

The Student Life Funding committee is funded from a portion of the general registration fee for undergraduate activities and programs charged to undergraduate students each semester.

Purpose Statement

This committee exists to provide funding to established programs and services at UNLV in order to allow for new programs and initiatives to be funded through the CSUN Student Senate. The CSUN Senate is a better representation of the UNLV student body, and should be the deciding factor in funding new programs that are coming to the University. This committee will fund existing and established programs in order to take that financial burden off the CSUN Student Government General Account.

Funding Eligibility Requirements

The committee will accept applications from existing and proven successful programs and departments. Success will be defined by student attendance and participation, proven benchmarks, years the program has existed, and how it has benefited the UNLV community. Each program will only be eligible for funding once per academic year from this committee.
