College Costs

Although Nevada's college costs remain below the national average, recently, they have risen far faster than costs in other states. Between 2006 and 2011, while in-state tuition at four-year public universities rose by an average of 42% across the U.S., it rose a full 65.8% in Nevada. Similarly, the price of 2-year in-state tuition at public schools rose 48.2% in the state, compared to a national average of 30.8%. These spikes are due, in part, to the Board of Regents desire to counteract a tightening state education budget, which has meant higher tuition and the loss of faculty jobs.

College Enrollment

Though enrollment in Nevada's public colleges and universities saw net growth from 2000 to 2010, that enrollment has slowed in recent years. According to the Nevada System of Higher Education, between 2010 and 2011 the number of full-time undergraduates enrolled in public universities dropped by 6.2%. The biggest change, a few years earlier, was in enrollment at two-year colleges, with those schools' enrollment numbers dropping precipitously: between 2005 and 2010, enrollment dropped 23.4% in Nevada, compared to 16.7% across the U.S. Reasons for this include a general reduction in student enrollment during the recession, as well as Nevada's smaller education budget in the last few years.

Higher Education Initiatives

  1. Official State Links

  2. College Savings

    • SSgA Upromise 529 Plan: This Nevada state savings plan is meant for students and families looking to invest in college early but who can't necessarily put away a lot of money. It waives annual fees, provides tax benefits, and has low contribution limits. Students may also qualify for Nevada's Silver State Matching Grant Program.
    • Additional 529 Plans: Nevada offers students several other 529 college savings plans, all of which run through investment groups. These plans, from Vanguard, Putnam, and USAA, are meant for students and families that can invest slightly more than those choosing the SSga Upromise plan. Each of the three plans has a range of investment options, as well as tax benefits.
    • Nevada Prepaid Tuition Program: Another 529 program, this government plan is similar to the others in that it allows students to put away money for college early, essentially "locking in" today's tuition prices. It does not, however, cover more than tuition (fees, books, etc).
  3. Education Nonprofits

    • Go To College Nevada: This Nevada nonprofit is a comprehensive resource for students looking to enroll in postsecondary education. It hosts college seminars and workshops, provides financial aid resources and tips on applying to college, and connects students to college preparatory materials.
    • Nevada PEP: Designed to support families with children who have disabilities, NV PEP provides resources to help those students succeed in all levels of schools. They have numerous resources related to higher education and making the transition from high school to independent living at school.
  4. Higher Education News

    • NSHE News: The state body in charge of higher education maintains a collection of news on the state's colleges and universities.
    • Education Week Nevada: This national publication includes news collections specific to each state, providing readers with information on higher education trends in Nevada.
