Student Loans
Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for the federal direct unsubsidized loan. The FAFSA is available each October for the following academic year. Students should complete the FAFSA as soon as it becomes available in October. Direct unsubsidized loans are usually offered at interest rates lower than consumer loans and repayment begins six months after graduation, or six months after enrollment drops to less than half-time status.

In addition to the direct unsubsidized loan, students may also be eligible for the federal graduate PLUS loan. The graduate PLUS loan is a non-need-based federal loan program that allows graduate students to borrow up to the full cost of attendance, minus any other financial aid they are receiving. The graduate PLUS loan application typically is available each spring for the following academic year. This program may be of interest to students who either have little or no eligibility for need-based financial aid programs or need additional assistance to pay college costs after other forms of aid have been awarded. These loans are contingent upon creditworthiness or require a creditworthy co-borrower. It is important to review your credit history and address any necessary issues, as well as lower your consumer debt, prior to enrolling in school. You can access your credit report online.

Students may receive scholarship and loans up to their estimated Cost of Attendance (COA). The total financial aid awards, in any combination, cannot exceed the estimated COA. Students whose basic expenses exceed this amount may contact the Student Financial Services Office to request an individual COA review after the semester begins.

The UNLV financial aid school code is 002569.
