Financial Aid and Scholarships

Millennium Scholarship Changes Following the 2005 Legislative Session

  1. Two Strikes You're Out: Beginning in fall 2005, all entering and continuing students who lose eligibility more than once (from fall 2005 forward) will no longer be eligible for a Millennium Scholarship.
  2. 12 Credit Maximum Funding: Beginning January 1, 2006, total semester disbursements may not exceed the cost of 12 credits per semester at any eligible institution based on dollar-per-credit rates set by the State of Nevada for the Millennium Scholarship ($40 per credit lower division and $60/credit upper division at community colleges, $60/credit at Nevada State College, and $80/credit at the universities).
  3. Maintaining Eligibility:Beginning January 1, 2006, all students with initial Millennium Scholarship eligibility occurring after May 1, 2003 must:
    • maintain a 2.60 semester grade point average for each semester during their first year of enrollment (first year is defined as less than 30 credit hours earned); and
    • maintain a 2.75 semester grade point average for each semester thereafter.
    Note: this policy change does not apply to students with initial Millennium Scholarship eligibility occurring before May 1, 2003 (they are still required to maintain a cumulative 2.00 GPA)
  4. No Remedial Courses: Beginning fall 2005, Millennium funds can no longer be used to pay for remedial/developmental courses (defined as any math or English course with a course number less than 100).
  5. Disabled Students:Students who have a documented physical or mental disability or who were previously subject to an individualized education program under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, 20 U.S.C. §§ 1400 et seq., or a plan under Title V of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, 29 U.S.C. §§ 791 et seq. are to be determined by the institution to be exempt from the following Millennium Scholarship eligibility criteria:
    • 6 year time limitation following high school graduation to utilize Millennium funds; and
    • minimum semester credit hour enrollment levels (12 credits at the universities and state college and 6 credits at the community colleges).
  6. Refunds: All money from a Millennium Scholarship awarded to a student that is refunded in whole or in part for any reason must be refunded to the Millennium Trust Fund and not the student.
  7. Summer School: Students will continue to receive Millennium funding for summer school.
  8. GPA Rounding: High school grade point averages used to determine initial Millennium eligibility, as well as grade point averages earned in college to maintain and regain Millennium eligibility must be reported and recorded with two decimal points (e.g. 2.60 instead of 2.6).
