The Time is Now

to continue your education at college

The University of Nebraska is Here to Support You

According to recent surveys, a number of graduating seniors are rethinking their college plans. Some are considering attending a school closer to home. Others may be weighing whether to come to college at all.

In these uncertain times, we’re committed to keeping a University of Nebraska education affordable for everyone. That means if you're planning to continue your academic journey after high school, there’s no better time to pursue a college degree than now.

We recently froze tuition across the University of Nebraska system for the next two school years, on all four of our campuses, so you don’t have to wonder about the cost of college. We’ve also created a new program called the Nebraska Promise that will cover full tuition costs for students with family incomes of $60,000 or less.

No matter what happens, the value of a college degree isn't going to change. So, keep moving forward. The University of Nebraska is invested in making sure you succeed.

"We want to make sure each of you can graduate on time, with as little debt as possible, with a degree that will prepare you for success in life and work—while caring first and foremost for your health and well-being."

Apply to the University of Nebraska Today

When you apply for admission at one of our three undergraduate campuses (UNKUNL or UNO), you can also apply to the other two—or to our two-year technical college (NCTA)—with the check of a button. You'll self-report your coursework and test scores, leading to a more timely admission decision. And, instead of paying multiple application fees, you'll pay a one-time fee of $45. 

The admission process, application fees and deadlines for UNMC vary by program. Please visit the website of the program you are interested in for more information.

All application deadlines can be found on the campus admissions pages below.
