Privacy Statement

If you decide to use the optional net price calculator, any information you enter within the tool is not retained, transmitted or used by the University of Nevada, Reno or third party for prospective admissions or financial aid profiling purposes. The use of the net price calculator does not require your name, date of birth, address, social security number or other personally identifiable information.

Limitations of the Calculator

The net price calculator is not an official application for Federal, State of Nevada or Nevada financial aid programs. Students who are interested in applying for financial aid at Nevada can begin the process by completing the correct year Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

The net price estimates provided are not binding upon the U.S. Department of Education, the Nevada System of Higher Education, the State of Nevada or University of Nevada.

The net price calculator estimates displayed to you do not represent a final bill determination, an actual financial aid award or final net price to attend Nevada. The values are a median based estimate of scholarship and grant aid provided to students within the previous school year and the cost of attendance. Higher education costs and available financial aid programs will vary each school year. The data used within the calculator is subject to change at any time.

Welcome to University of Nevada's Net Price Calculator.

Whether you are just beginning to consider Nevada, are ready to apply or have already been admitted, this calculator will help you plan how to pay for your college education.  Using the net price calculator, you can find out your eligibility for financial aid and estimate your out-of-pocket expenses. Rather than shy away from applying to colleges that seem to be out of your price range, results from the net price calculator will show you how affordable University of Nevada may be.  Colleges have different resources and financial aid policies, so your "net price" will vary from institution to institution.

The net price calculator was developed by the U.S. Department of Education and can be used as information resource to compare tuition/fee, other educational costs, median scholarship and grant awards among financial aid offices in order to determine an estimate of higher education out-of-pocket expenses.

The net price calculator is only applicable to the following group of students:

  • New undergraduate freshmen who have never attended college
  • Degree seeking
  • Nevada or out-of-state residency
  • Enrolled in at least 12 credit hours worth of classes per term fall and spring semesters
  • U.S. Citizen or eligible non-citizen.

Not all students will qualify for scholarships and grants for a variety of reasons and not limited to these examples:

Example 1: Scholarships are based upon the donor's terms and conditions for matching up students with a unique scholarship awards. Eligibility for scholarships has many restrictions and not all students will qualify.

Example 2: Grants are derived from limited need-based funding sources. The larger the family income, the less likely a student would be considered for a need-based grant program.

Example 3: A student who completed the FAFSA late will likely not be considered for a need-based grant or a scholarship program because there was limited funding. The available funds were offered to other students who applied earlier within the FAFSA completion process.

No student loans or work study programs are factored into the net price calculator estimate as required by the U.S. Department of Education. However, many students who attend higher education may likely need to borrow  federal student loans, work during school,  utilize savings accounts, utilize veteran's benefits, etc in order to help pay for their educational expenses at a later date.

Even if you're not going to college in the near future, the net price calculator can be helpful. Younger students and their parents can use this tool to learn about college costs and receive early financial aid information. You can create "what if" scenarios based on expected family income and anticipated expenses, and start to plan and save well before applying to college.

If you decide to apply to the University of Nevada, you will need to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form to the Financial Aid Office in order for us to determine your financial need.  Our school code is 002568.

The net price calculator is required for all Title IV institutions that enroll full-time, first-time degree - or certificate - seeking undergraduate students.
