Our Mission

The University of Nebraska—through its four campuses—strives to be the best public university in the country as measured by the impact we have on our people and our state, and—through them—the world.

The Road Ahead Starts Right Here.

When the place you call home goes on and on in all directions, limitations aren’t something you worry about. We take a wider look at the world, which means we approach problems in ways others might overlook. That means we’re not just making a difference right here in Nebraska; we’re improving lives in all corners of the world. 

Charting Our Course in Unprecedented Times

In Doing, We Learn

At the University of Nebraska, we equip our students with the skills and opportunities to do great things.

Study Abroad

Not all of our students’ most valuable lessons are learned in Nebraska.

Undergraduate Research

We are among the top 30 U.S. public universities in research and development spending.

Internships

From the search to the interview, we help our students land valuable internships with companies all over Nebraska and beyond.

Transformational Advising

We help students explore, define and accomplish their academic and career goals.

Finish in Four Years

With the Commit to Complete program, our students set goals to graduate sooner with less debt and more earning potential.

The University of Nebraska: Affordable Excellence

True to our land-grant heritage, the University of Nebraska’s highest priority is to provide students and families with affordable access to an excellent education. With higher education increasingly linked to individual and economic success, our commitment to ensuring both affordability and quality has never been more important.

Great Education for a Great Value

The University of Nebraska represents a great value for students and families, with tuition costs at least 22 percent below the averages of our peer institutions.

2018-19 resident undergraduate tuition and fees:

  • Resident Undergraduate
    $ 7,512/year
Peer Institution Average
  • Resident Undergraduate (Peer)
    $ 9,308(24%)

*Notes: Does not include differential tuition rates. Tuition rates at the University of Nebraska Medical Center vary by program. Does not include room and board, books and supplies, or other costs.

Financial Aid

More than half of all University of Nebraska undergraduates receive financial aid that they do not have to pay back—meaning most of our students don’t pay the “sticker price.”

Access for Students With Financial Need

Cost shouldn’t be a barrier for students who want to attend the University of Nebraska. More than 1 in 5 Nebraska undergraduates at the university qualify for full tuition coverage thanks to Collegebound Nebraska, our tuition assistance program for students with high financial need.
