The average student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas pays $10,038 per year including tuition, housing, books, and fees.

Basic undergraduate tuition is generally the same regardless of a student's program of study, however according to the UNLV website's section on Common Tuition and Fees, "Differential Program Fees" do exist, meaning that credits in certain departments or schools will cost more than others. At UNLV, these programs include the School of Nursing, School of Business, School of Architecture and Department of Physical Therapy. The table on page 10 of the Board of Regents Manual provides a breakdown of these additional costs.
