UNLV Continuing Education is kicking off 2020 with a revised (and vastly improved!) policy on staff and alumni discounts.

Beginning with spring 2020 classes UNLV staff will receive a standard 15 percent discount on professional development classes and 5 percent off personal enrichment classes. Alumni will receive 5 percent off both professional development and personal enrichment classes. In the past, discounts for staff and alumni were determined on an individual class basis; the new policy standardizes the discounts with very few exceptions.
