Term-Fall 2021
Fill out an application–Under Personal information-you may want to include your Social Security Number(if applicable) so that the financial aid office can connect your application with your financial aid application (FAFSA). Where it states on the application former names, this response is for a student who changed their name in high school or a student who changed their name when they got married. Under High School Information, you may self report your classes. If so, you will need your transcript.  You may self report either your ACT or SAT scores or both, but you have to send at least one official score report from ACT or SAT.  You will have to go on either ACT.org or SAT.org and send an electronic copy to UNLV directly.  If you have not taken the ACT or SAT, there may be a process outline by UNLV to address this issue. If you have not taken any college classes and do not plan to take them while in high school, please select “I have not taken any college-level classes excluding AP, IB, or tech prep courses.” The application will automatically bypass the section about college classes. If you have taken or are taking college classes (Jumpstart), choose, “I have taken college-level classes excluding AP, IB or tech prep courses” and report them. The application fee is $60.00.
