Tuition & Fee Explaination

Registration and fee costs are used in the calculation of the cost of attendance. A full time enrollment (15 credit hours for undergraduates) is used unless the student’s enrollment indicates otherwise. Actual registration and fee rates are available in the Board of Regents Procedures and Guidelines Manual and on the Nevada System of Higher Education webpage.

Book/Supplies

The Books and Supplies allowance is based on the estimated average cost of books per semester by the contracted Follett Bookstore.

Room/Board

Room and Board expenses are based on the average estimated expenses. The room portion is based on off-campus costs of rent for apartments in the northern Nevada area.

Transportation

Transportation cost allowances are estimated based on average driving distances to campus and routine vehicle maintenance. Actual expenses for these items will vary depending on individual lifestyles, however the college is required to use an average in calculating these costs.

Personal Misc

Personal expenses include costs for clothing, toiletries, medical/dental, recreational, and other miscellaneous expenses.

Loan Fees

Loan Fees can be added to a student budget. Loan fees are not automatically applied to a student’s Cost of Attendance. At the discretion of the Student Loan Coordinator Loan Fees might be added to accommodate a student loan request or to prevent over-awarding.

Allowable Budget Adjustments

Federal law specifies the components of a student’s cost of attendance. The college uses a standard budget to determine financial aid eligibility. However, if a student has special circumstances, the Financial Assistance Office may be able to add additional items to the cost of attendance. The most common budget allowances are for unusual medical expenses and child care cost, when both the student and spouse are working or attending school full time. If the student can submit documentation of required medical expenses and/or documented disability expenses, and/or child care costs or other funding, adjustments may be made to their budget using professional judgment. Requests for budget adjustments must be in writing or using the appropriate form. Most budget adjustments increase loan eligibility. Please contact a Financial Aid Advisor for additional information.
