UNK is the MOST AFFORDABLE Nebraska University

Your college education should provide lifelong success, NOT lifelong debt. UNK is the most affordable Nebraska university and most students receive significant financial aid. In 2020-21, 87% of all freshmen received scholarships and/or grants. The average need-based award was $10,267.* You CAN afford a University of Nebraska degree.

These are undergraduate student costs based on 15 credit hours per semester for two semesters and living in a double room with a Loper meal plan. With the exclusive New Nebraskan Scholarship, all U.S. undergraduate students pay in-state tuition (does not apply to online programs).

UNK is a First-Generation Destination!

Did you know that 4 in 10 UNK students are first-generation? A first-generation student is one whose parents have not completed a bachelor's degree. It can be daunting for first-gen students to navigate their way in higher education, but we are here to support you. Many UNK faculty and staff were also among the first in their families to complete a degree.

Together let's break down boundaries, help you connect and thrive on campus, and finish your degree to launch a successful career.

UNK has emerged as a first-generation destination, and that starts with an easy-to-navigate admissions process with a supportive team ready to answer all your questions
