UNLV Enrollment Checklist
Student Portal & Email
Activate MyUNLV and Rebelmail.
MyUNLV is UNLV’s student portal system for students who have applied, been admitted or are taking classes. On MyUNLV, students are able to access their student record, search and enroll for courses, and pay tuition.
New students are automatically granted access to MyUNLV upon submission of an application for UNLV admissions. Login information will be sent to the email address provided in the application. Students will receive an ID number from the Nevada System of Higher Education as their username.
In addition, students will receive a UNLV email address that must be activated via Rebelmail.
Rebelmail is UNLV’s official means of communication with students, faculty and staff. Activate your rebelmail account as soon as possible to avoid missing out on important information about deadlines, major campus events, and announcements.
For assistance with student accounts, contact the UNLV IT Help Desk online or at 702-895-0777.
Housing and Work Study
Apply for housing and work study.
Housing – If you plan to live on campus at UNLV, you will need to complete a Housing Application. A non-refundable application fee of $125 is required when a new student submits a housing application.
Visit UNLV’s Housing & Residential Life website for more information.
Federal Work Study – As a UNLV student, you may be able to work on campus. The Federal Work Study program provides eligible students with jobs on campus. Student eligibility is determined via the FAFSA.
The U.S. Department of Education provides funding for a limited number of students to participate in this financial aid program. Eligible students are offered an award that will pay their wages during semesters/terms of employment.
Welcome Events & Campus Tour

Orientation – Receive your class schedule, learn about how to get involved on campus, meet faculty, staff, current, and other incoming students. Special programming is also provided for parents and families.
Admitted Student Fridays – Attend a half-day program to learn more about admitted student next steps, connect with future classmates and staff, and decide if UNLV is the right fit for you. It’s your day to ask questions, explore campus, and share the journey with your family. Available January through April.

Take this tour to become familiar with the campus before classes begin! The guide will share fun facts about UNLV and answer any questions you have along the way!
Review financial aid and complete verification process, if necessary.
Financial Aid – Once accepted to UNLV, students are able to view their financial aid options on MyUNLV where they also accept/decline their awards. In addition, students are able to view their account balance for any out-of-pocket expenses.
DACA/Immigrant students will need to complete an Alternate Need form for financial aid options.
Acknowledgement of the Millennium Scholarship – Students are initially notified of their eligibility for the Millennium Scholarship program in early August following high school graduation. Qualifying students will receive an award letter from the State Treasurer’s Office describing the terms and conditions of the scholarship program. To receive funding, students are required to complete the Acknowledgement of Award process online.
Financial Aid Verification – The financial aid verification process is required by the U.S. Department of Education. Institutions are required to collect and maintain specific documentation on selected FAFSA records before disbursing federal funds.
Approximately 30% of students who submit a FAFSA will be federally selected for verification. Students who are selected for verification must submit the requested documents in order to receive their financial aid.
If you are selected for verification, you will be notified in one of two ways:
· The United States Department of Education will notify you immediately after completing the FAFSA through a note on your Student Aid Report.
· UNLV will inform you through the “to do” list on MyUNLV. In addition, email communication will be sent to the email address listed on MyUNLV.
If selected for verification, visit the UNLV Student Self Service Center for more information.
Follow up with important documentation including official high school transcript, ACT/SAT test scores, and immunization records.
Official High School Transcript – You must submit your official high school transcript, unless you chose to self-report your courses and grades via the UNLV admission application.
