Money resources for students

Money stressing you out? It doesn’t have to. Financial Aid can help you figure out how to pay for college, and free personal finance coaching helps you meet your goals.

  • Emergency assistance

    If you ever reach a point where you cannot make ends meet, we can help you find a path forward. The Dean of Students office works with students facing unusual challenge or hardship, including financial hardship. If you need help, start with a phone call or a visit to the Dean of Students office in the Lake Level of Clark.

    Pack Provisions is another important resource for students experiencing financial struggle. Pack Provisions provides access to perishable and non-perishable foods, meals on campus, school supplies, hygiene items and more to students in need.

  • Financial aid

    The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships provides students and families with assistance regarding funding their education. Financial Aid counselors can provide support and information at any stage of your education. They’re here to help you and your family figure out your best options to pay for college.

    To apply for financial aid, you and your family will need to complete the FAFSA every year. The FAFSA application opens every year on October 1, and the priority deadline is February 1. Your financial aid award may include some combination of different awards: grants, loans, work study, and scholarships.

    If you have questions about the FAFSA, your financial aid award, or any part of this process – you’re not alone! Financial Aid counselors are eager to help. Visit the office on the 3rd floor of the Fitzgerald Student Services Building, email finaid@unr.edu, or call (775) 784-4666.

  • Cashier's Office

    The cashier’s office processes your tuition payments. Payments can be made to the cashier’s office using the student’s MyNevada account via credit/debit card and/or electronic check. Payments can also be made in person on the third floor of the Fitzgerald Student Services Building. If you have financial aid awards, the office of Financial Aid is responsible for disbursement of loans, grants, and scholarships directly to your tuition bill. If any money is left over after the Financial Aid has applied to your tuition, the cashier’s office issues you a refund of the residual amount. Visit the cashier’s office website for information about tuition and fees, payment due dates, refund drop dates, and to make a tuition payment.
