NSHE Wavier for Veteran Recipients of the Purple Heart

Request for Waiver of Registration, Laboratory and Other Mandatory Fees

(Effective Fall 2019)

The Nevada Board of Regents revised a waiver of certain fees related to registration to eligible veterans who have been awarded the Purple Heart for their service in the U.S. Armed Forces.  An NSHE institution shall waive registration, laboratory and other mandatory fees for eligible students pursuant to Title 4, Chapter 17 Section 14 of the Handbook.  To determine if you are eligible, complete this form and provide the required documentation to your institution’s Veterans Coordinator.  The institution may request additional information or documents to verify eligibility.

The amount of the waiver must be equal to the balance of registration fees, laboratory fees, and other mandatory fees assessed against the student that remain unpaid after the student’s account has been credited with the full amount of any federal education benefits for a semester, the full amount of the registration fees, laboratory fees, and any other mandatory fees assessed against the student for that semester.  Federal education benefits include federal grants awarded based on completion of the FAFSA, Veteran Administration education benefits and/or the Veterans Administration Vocational and Employment benefit.
