General Information: The Nevada Board of Regents provides a waiver of certain fees related to registration to a Native American student who is a member of a federally recognized Indian tribe or nation, all or part of which is located within the boundaries of Nevada, or who is certified by the enrollment department of such tribe or nation or by the Bureau of Indian Affairs as being a descendant of an enrolled member of such tribe or nation, all or part of which is located within the boundaries of Nevada, regardless of member status. An NSHE institution shall waive registration, laboratory, and other mandatory fees for eligible students pursuant to Title 4, Chapter 17, Section 15 of the Handbook. To determine if you are eligible, complete this form and provide the required documentation to your institution’s designated office as listed below on page 2. The institution may request additional information or documentation 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 remains unpaid after the student’s account has been credited with the full amount of any federal education benefits to which the student is entitled to for that semester; or if a student is not entitled to receive 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 including but not limited to Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, TEACH Grant, and any federal educational benefits.
